For Future Consideration

Julie McNeil in her new role incorporates funding support both for Cairns Hockey as an organization and support and assistance for clubs and members. Should you wish to discuss any aspect of funding/grants, you’re welcome to Julie via email at

As we move through the year, Julie McNeil will look to share these opportunities with you and Ishe is hoping to deliver a workshop associated with grant and funding opportunities where club reps can attend and work through issues like
(i) Finding appropriate grants
(ii) How do we optimize grant opportunities
(iii) Grant writing support
(iv) Engaging support
(v) Hockey working together to advance support and funding

If you think this might be of benefit or interest to your club or members, let Julie know and depending on responses, she can progress accordingly.

Welcome to 2020
