I am pleased to announce the recipients of the latest round of Local Sporting Champions grants.
These grants of $500 for individuals and $3,000 for teams allow our budding athletes to pursue their sporting endeavours.
Playing sport is synonymous with the Australian way of life and it is excellent to see so many people of varying ages and sporting aspirations actively involved in their communities.
The Local Sporting Champions grants contribute to the cost of travel, accommodation, equipment and uniforms to enable athletes to participate in a particular championship or event.
It is good to be able to nurture our talented local athletes and assist them in achieving their goals.
I congratulate all of the winners and wish them every success in their sporting fields.
Applications for Local Sporting Champions grants should be received before the competition start date. The next round of assessments will take place in March, visit www.ausport.gov.au for more information.
Contact details of Local Sporting Champions recipients can be provided on request.
