Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester said the grants program helped with the costs associated with competing, coaching or officiating at a state, national or international championship for young people aged between 12-18. "Competing at a state, national or international level requires enormous dedication by young athletes and support from their families, but one barrier to them achieving their dreams is the cost of attending high-level events."

Additional support to continue

Mr Chester also said, "This program is designed to help support their sporting endeavours and help them realise their potential as a sportsperson. The recent round of LSCP saw a large number of recipients from Gippsland including Tayli Dimarco, who represented Country Victoria at the U16 Australian Basketball Junior Championships in Western Australia."

"This is a fantastic grants program and I encourage all eligible young Gippslanders to apply and receive some additional support to continue pursuing their sporting dreams." Mr Chester added.
