More than 180 of Western Australia’s aspiring regional athletes will be helped to attend training camps and competitions, thanks to a State Government program that assists with travel costs.

The Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme assists regional families with young athletes aspiring to compete at the highest levels by offsetting out-of-pocket travel and accommodation costs.

Young competitors in a range of sports, including surfing, polocrosse, cricket, netball and basketball are among the 184 athletes sharing in more than $97,400 of grant assistance.

The Athlete Travel Subsidy Scheme is funded by the State Government and has supported thousands of regional families with more than $1 million in grants since its inception.
