This important Australian Government initiative is designed to provide financial support for young sportsmen and women participating in state or national sporting competitions or national school sport competitions.
$12,500 a year in grants will go to non-metropolitan electorates to help young sports people to achieve their sporting goals.
Under the initiative, successful individual applicants will receive $500 and successful team applicants will receive $3,000 to contribute towards the cost of travel, accommodation, uniforms or equipment when competing in a nominated sporting competition.
The LSC Program is available for young people between 12 and 18 years of age (inclusive), travelling more than 250km return, to participate in a National Sporting Organisation endorsed state or national sporting competition, or national school sport competition.
