The Young Athletes Travel Subsidy

The travel subsidy aims to foster the development of young athletes and support elite athlete pathways by providing financial assistance to help alleviate the costs associated with attending championship events.  Subsidies are provided retrospectively under a tiered funding model, with applicants eligible once every 2 calendar years at each tier allowing up to a maximum of $1200 in financial assistance over the 3 event tiers. Athletes and officials can only apply after they have competed or officiated at an event and within 6 months of participating.  Officials (such as coaches, referees and scorers) attending eligible events can also apply for assistance if they meet the eligibility criteria.  The funding tier/events are: – State or state school event – $200; National or national school event – $400 and International event – $600.
