Young Athletes Travel Subsidy
Fostering the development of young athletes and officials
Posted on 24.04.2018
The Young Athletes 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. The travel subsidy provides financial assistance through three event tiers and supports attendance at specific state, national and international events. Officials (such as coaches, referees and scorers) officiating at eligible events can also apply for assistance if they meet the eligibility criteria.
The travel subsidy will allow up to a maximum of $1,200 in financial assistance over the three event tiers, once every two calendar years. Eligible athletes and officials can apply for one event per tier once every two calendar years. The following travel subsidy amounts are available under the three event tiers:
- state or state school event—$200
- national or national school event—$400
- international event—$600.
Applications must be correctly submitted within six months of attending the event to be eligible. For further information on how to apply, please click on the following link: https://www.qld.gov.au/recreation/sports/funding/athletes/yats/applying
