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 3 of the 2022-23 program is open until 31 December 2022, 11:59pm [AEDT] and Round 4 will open on 1 January 2023 12:00 am [AEDT].
