Money avail­able for sport­ing kids

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

YOUNG ath­letes are be­ing urged to ap­ply for fed­eral sport­ing grants, val­ued at up to $500.

The Lo­cal Sport­ing Cham­pi­ons grants are aimed at al­le­vi­at­ing the fi­nan­cial strain some fam­i­lies and young ath- letes feel when se­lected for a sig­nif­i­cant sport­ing event, NT Se­na­tor Nigel Scul­lion said.

“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,” Se­na­tor Scul­lion said.

The num­ber of grants is limited, so ath­letes, coaches and of­fi­cials are be­ing urged to ap­ply be­fore the June 30 dead­line. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit aus­port.gov.au/LSC
