Money available for sporting kids
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
