Healthy Sports Rewards

Children and families should be able to enjoy sports free from unhealthy food company advertisements used to promote harmful products. 
Greater Shepparton City Council is committed to supporting sporting clubs to be places that are active, healthy and socially connected. We believe that sports clubs, particularly junior clubs, should be free from unhealthy food and sugary drink sponsorships. 
That’s why Council has partnered with VicHealth and a group of local governments to call out harmful sponsorship in children’s sport and take a stand to put the health and wellbeing of our children first over by offering Healthy Sports Rewards. 
Healthy Sports Rewards aims to offer an alternative to the unhealthy food and drink vouchers often presented to junior sporting club players. The vouchers will offer free or discounted entry to local sports and recreation facilities and are a great way to recognise junior players.  

Please note that all clubs within Greater Shepparton are eligible, regardless of any existing sponsorship arrangements. If your club is interested in receiving Healthy Sports Rewards to give to your junior players, please complete the short expression of interest form via SurveyMonkey below by Friday 22 April 2022. 

Healthy Sports Rewards are limited, so be quick to express your interest.
