2019 State Teams Championships - QLD Team Announced!
The 2019 Queensland Team that will compete at the State Teams Championships has been selected! Congratulations to all the athletes and coaches who will be traveling to the Australian Institute of Sport in October to take part in this prestigious annual competition!
The Emerging Athlete Pathways Subsidy (formerly 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 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 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 subsidy amounts are available under the three event tiers:
State or state school event—$200
National or national school event—$400
Applications must be correctly submitted within six months of attending the event to be eligible. If swimmers from your Club recently attended the McDonald's Queensland Short Course Championships please ensure they are aware of this funding opportunity.
