The annual Thermoskin Community Sports Fund is back for 2016 with a bit of a difference, now Teams or Individuals can apply for funds.
Now in its fourth year, the popular fund has been split up into 3 categories encouraging entries from Under 50’s Teams, Over 50’s Teams and Individuals. The much needed funds are distributed to grassroots Australian sporting teams and individuals from a total pool of $10,000 to purchase new equipment, upgrade training facilities or new uniforms.
Over the past three years, the fund has continued to grow with over 300 clubs across a variety of different sports applying and 20,000+ Facebook fans voting for their favourite sporting team.
With a superstar judging panel that includes Australian Olympic Gold Medalist and World Record Holder in Swimming, Melanie Wright, Elite Netballer Sharelle McMahon, ex-Socceroo and International player Brett Emerton and Thermoskin’s CEO Matthew Symington, nominations will be considered based on:
- Quality of application
- Why the funds are needed
- Value to the community (Teams) or what the sport means to you (Individuals)
- Number of votes received by the public
Nominate your team or an individual from 1st March until 1st May 2016
Public voting begins 4th May until 25th May 2016
Recipients will be announced 6th June 2016
