Local Sporting Champions (LSC) Program

The Government’s Local Sporting Champions program provides financial assistance for young people aged between 12 and 18 years who are participating in sporting competitions at a state, national or international level. Successful applicants receive a $500 grant that can be used towards the cost of travel, accommodation, uniforms or equipment when competing, coaching or officiating at an official National Sporting Organisation (NSO) endorsed state, national or international sporting championship, or a School Sport Australia state, national or international championship. Eligible applications are assessed by a panel comprising of members from the local community and the panel’s recommendations are submitted for final approval by the Australian Sports Commission.
