With Round 2 of the Local Sporting Champions funding program closing soon, local Member of Federal Parliament Madeleine King is encouraging young sports people to apply for one of the $500 grants on offer.
“This is a great opportunity for young athletes, coaches and officials to get a helping hand to go to state, national or international sporting events,” Ms King said.
“The $500 grant is available for 12 to 18 year olds and can go towards travel, accommodation, uniforms and equipment costs.”
