The final round of Federal Government sports funding for the year is about to close, so students who are about to represent their sport at a State, national or international level are urged to apply.

“The Local Sporting Champion Program closes on October 31, so there’s no time to waste,” Federal Member for Macquarie, Susan Templeman said.

“The grant is worth between $500 and $750, and helps cover the costs of events, including travel, uniforms and accommodation.

“It’s open to young people participating in championships as an athlete, coach or official, and it’s a relatively easy application process,” she said.

“A wide range of sports are eligible, from roller skating to footy, equestrian to basketball.”

Students selected for Competitions and events organised by Official National Sporting Organisations (NSO) are eligible, as are School Sport Australia championships.

“I encourage each and every sportswoman or sportsman aged 12-18 who thinks that they might be eligible, to get into contact with my office for more information,” Ms Templeman said.

“As a mum, I know how quickly the costs of these events add up - from petrol and accommodation, to flights, uniforms, team fees and all those last minute costs no one seems to tell you about,” she said.

Applications for the Local Sporting Champions Program close on 31 October 2018, and the application form and details on eligibility can be found at the website.

For further information please contact Susan's office on: (02) 4573 8222 or email Susan.Templeman.MP@aph.gov.au.
