The Sport Access Foundation is inviting young Australians aged seven to 17 who are living with a disability to apply for one of three inaugural $2000 grants to help them achieve their sporting ambitions.
The grants are donated to help with the costs of participating in their chosen sport that these youngsters and their families otherwise cannot afford.
Applicants must be Australian citizens or residents, and athletes, coaches, umpires or referees in championship-level or state or national competitions.
The full list of selection criteria and an online application can be found on the Sports Access Foundation website. Applications close 30 April 2017. Grant recipients will be announced in June.
Shooting involves visual acuity, coordination and accuracy, and is an excellent sport for many types of disability, requiring no special compensatory equipment, nor do shooters need to compete in special categories. SSAA NSW urges young members living with a disability to follow their dreams!
