“This is great news for local sporting associations,” Mr Waldron said.

“Funding for this financial year will help these groups provide sport and active recreation opportunities to residents throughout the Wagin electorate.”

Nationals WA candidate for Roe Peter Rundle said sport was an important part of life in regional WA.

“This funding provides another way to create active communities, enabling people to come together over a common interest or a sport they are passionate about,” Mr Rundle said.

Sport has always played an important role in Mr Waldron and Mr Rundle’s lives.

Administered by the Department of Sport and Recreation, R-OSP funding assists organisations in the development of sport at a regional level, including establishing governance systems and providing safe access to competition opportunities to regional participants whilst also assisting in supporting coaches, officials and volunteers within regional sport.
