Backing young sporting champions in Kooyong

The Turnbull Government is committed to getting Australian kids more active and has extended the Local Sporting Champions program to an additional 3000 young athletes receiving grants.

These $500 grants provide financial assistance to athletes, coaches and officials, to go towards travel, accommodation, uniforms or equipment when attending endorsed state, national or international championships.

I encourage young athletes, coaches and officials in Kooyong to apply for a Local Sporting Champions grant before the deadline closes on June 30.

Local Sporting Champions grants provide an ideal opportunity for young sports people to gain financial assistance to help them turn their sporting dreams into a reality.

The grants are aimed at alleviating the financial strain some families and young athletes feel when selected for a significant sporting event.

The Local Sporting Champions grants are important for encouraging more Australians to participate in sport and help support emerging athletes achieve all they can in sport.

The number of Local Sporting Champions grants is limited, and it is important that athletes, coaches and officials apply for the financial support before their event.
