Club social ride
THE Berri Netball Club has seen a
significant boost in junior numbers
thanks to the State Government’s
sports voucher program for primary
The program allows every pri-
mary school student to claim a
voucher, which is used as a $50
subsidy towards the cost of a sports
club fee or membership.
Rebecca Stokes from the Berri
Junior Netball Club said the club
wanted parents to get the most
value from the vouchers.
“We made the decision as a
committee to keep our fees at $50
when the Government introduced
these vouchers,” she said.
“We wanted to make sure peo-
ple could get the full benefit of the
voucher to make sure all girls from
the primary schools were able to
come and play netball.”
Mrs Stokes said the club has
seen an immediate impact from the
“We have had a lot of people
sign up to play who weren’t pre-
viously involved in the sport and
we think that by keeping that at an
affordable cost it has allowed a lot
of parents to bring their children
out,” she said.
“This has increased our numbers
and been beneficial for the compe-
tition on a Saturday morning.”
Mrs Stokes said the club had
found new ways to raise revenue
after deciding against increasing its
fees this season.
“Obviously it still costs us
money to run the netball club,” she
“We have got some really good
sponsors on board that have been
doing weekly barbecues.
“So we have been doing that and
fundraising in other areas so that
we can get money from those other
avenues, rather than increasing the
fees, so parents aren’t having to
pay on top of the sports voucher.”
Mrs Stokes said she believes the
Government should continue with
“I really hope they look at the
outcome of what has gone on,” she
“Hopefully they will see the
results and decide to continue the
“To see kids getting out there
and getting involved in sport, espe-
cially team sport, I think is a really
good thing moving forward.
“All children should be given the
opportunity to play sport.
“It shouldn’t come down to
whether parents can financially
afford it or not.”
