Sport Grants

Local Sporting Champions

The Local Sporting Champions grant provides financial assistance for coaches, officials and competitors aged 12-18 participating in state, national or international championships. 

Children can represent their sporting club or their school in these sporting events.

If successful, individual applicants will receive $500-$750 towards the cost of attending their championships, covering travel, accommodation, entry fees, uniforms, equipment and other travel expenses.  This grant is given out every three months - the usual deadlines are June 30, September 30, December 31 and March 31 each year. 

Parents & children need to apply directly via a simple online application form.

This is a fantastic grant that is 'electorate based', meaning each electorate is given a certain number of grants to award.  This number is a reflection of the number of eligible applications received. So we would like to encourage all eligible kids in Warringah to apply.

In our first year (June 2019-March 2020), Zali's electoral office gave out 71 LSC grants to local juniors, covering 26 sports, equalling $42, 000. To see if juniors from your sport have received this grant, please CLICK HERE.

Applications for LSC have now reopened.  The next deadline for applications is September 30, 2020 which means you can apply anytime between now and then.
