Flood Recovery effort receives VSA nomination

The Community Sport Flood Recovery program has been nominated for a 2022 Victorian Sport Award in the Leasexpress ‘Sport Initiative of the Year’ category. 

In collaboration with eight Regional Sports Assemblies (GippSport, Leisure Networks, Mallee Sports Assembly, South West Sport, Sports Central. Sport North East, Valley Sport, and Wimmera Regional Sports Assembly), Regional Sport Victoria created the initiative in order to get clubs in flood affected areas back into playing the sports they love as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

With clubs from a wide range of sports across regional Victoria receiving help, the program was a big success, and RSV is extremely proud to receive the nomination. 

RSV General Manager Meghan Mayman spoke about the delight she felt when she found out the program was nominated for the award. 

“The initiative we created alongside our hard-working Regional Sport Assemblies was extremely successful. It was incredible to be part of a project that was providing direct assistance to clubs at a tough time. It’s wonderful that the program has been recognised through this nomination.” she said. 

While flood waters have subsided, the recovery process will still continue for a long period of time, with Meghan adding: 

“We will continue to be a resource for regional sporting clubs. Please reach out to your local Regional Sports Assembly, should you need assistance.” 

One of our member Regional Sports Assemblies, GippSport also received a nomination in the ‘My Sport Live’ Community Sporting Event of the Year award for their West Gippsland Female Football Festival, which was a huge success. Congratulations to GippSport on this achievement. 

The 2022 Victorian Sport Awards will be held by VicSport at Marvel Stadium on Wednesday the 7th of June. To view a full list of nominees, click here.
