Healthway grants to serve up healthier sporting clubs – Summer Healthy Sporting Club Program open!
Healthway is offering up to $4,000 in funding to Western Australian community sporting clubs competing in a recognised summer 2019 sporting competition.
Healthway has engaged the services of the WA School Canteen Association to achieve the following objectives:
- Increase healthy food options at club run canteens or kiosks
- Reduce sugary drinks sold within club run canteens or kiosks
- Reduce, wherever possible, the promotion of unhealthy messages or brands
- Improve club member awareness of healthy eating choices
- Educate and up-skill canteen managers and/or staff in offering healthy food and drinks in community sporting venues.
Through the program the WA School Canteen Association will provide free training and work with clubs across the season to prepare healthier menus.
The Healthy Sporting Club Program Guidelines provide details on how to apply.
The application portal is now open.

Traffic lights on the menu
Fuel to Go & Play uses a traffic light system to rate food and drinks as green, amber or red, based on their nutritional value. This makes it easier for clubs to offer healthier choices.
Healthy Sporting Clubs are encouraged to increase the availability and promotion of healthier choices using the traffic light system.

Healthy Sporting Clubs policy template
If your club has received a grant, it is a good idea to have a discussion with your club’s committee about implementing a Healthy Sporting Club policy. This policy is a requirement of receiving the grant and using our editable policy template makes this easy.
