Local Sporting Champions

I was delighted to host some of our most recent Local Sporting Champions for a congratulatory afternoon tea.

These remarkable young athletes are striving to achieve their sporting dreams and I am proud the Federal Government is able to support them through the Local Sporting Champions Grants program. 

The program provides financial assistance for young people aged 12-18 towards the cost of travel, accommodation, uniforms or equipment when competing, coaching or officiating at state, national and international sporting championships. Grants of $500 are available for successful individual applicants.

Athletes in this round have competed in state to international competitions in Basketball, Cross Country, Orienteering, Soccer, Volleyball, Softball, Rugby Union and Water Polo.

These students are competing at very high levels while maintaining their studies and social life and are to be commended for this level of commitment.
