Country Coaches and Judges Assistance Program

In 2019, the Gymnastics NSW received valuable feedback from our coaches and judges regarding the financial impact of travelling for competition and training. Building upon assistance provided by the Member Support Committee in 2019, Gymnastics NSW announces the 2020 Country Coaches and Judges Assistance Program.

The program will see twenty grants to the value of $500 awarded, a total grant pool of $10,000, with a least two grants of $500 awarded to each country region: South Coast, Riverina, Central West, Hunter, North West, and Far North Coast. Some country regions may receive more depending upon the applications received. Some country based Southern Region clubs may also be eligible. Annual funding should be expended within 12 months of the date of receiving the grant and the grant of funds is at the discretion of the Board and Member Support Committee.

Eligible applicants may apply for the grant to assist with the cost of travel and accommodation associated with attending events, education or meetings in Sydney.

When assessing the applications the Member Support Committee will consider the applicants contribution to gymnastics in NSW through service on a GNSW committee, as a volunteer, as a judge, hosting a sanctioned event, and attendance at high performance clinics. The distance travelled and the frequency of travel to Sydney to attend GNSW events, education, clinics and meetings will be considered along with whether the applicant is from a farming community affected by fire or drought.

Applications for the Country Officials Grant is now open and close 29 February 2020. Apply Here
