Local Sporting Champions program
Applications can now be submitted for Round 2 of the Local Sporting Champions program through the Australian Sports Commission.
The Local Sporting Champions program is an Australian Government initiative designed to provide financial assistance for young people aged 12-18 towards the cost of travel, accommodation, uniforms and equipment when competing, coaching or officiating at an official national sporting organisation (NSO) endorsed state, national or international sporting championships or a School Sport Australia state or national championships.
The Australian Government recognises that junior sportsmen and women can find it difficult to meet ongoing costs associated with participating in state or national and international sporting championships. This program will help provide individuals with the assistance needed to compete at these championships.
