After a suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Local Sporting Champions program is once again open to submissions! If you’re a young sportsperson, coach or sporting official, you can apply for a grant of up to $700 towards the cost of attending a statewide, national or international sporting championship.
Local Sporting Champions grants are approved in quarterly rounds – at any given time, there should usually be one round open. Round 4 of the 2020-21 program closes at 11.59 pm [AEST] on Wednesday 31 March 2021.
