Earlier today, Boccia NSW announced on Facebook a grant created by their organization designed to allow new players to get financial assistance to compete at the New South Wales Boccia State Titles taking place in March.
Three individuals each are eligible for AU$300 grants to offset the cost of travel to attend the competition at the Sydney Academy of Sport, Narrabeen from March 4 to 6. The organization is encouraging eligible competitors to apply by contacting them by January 18. People need to explain their budget to attend, how they will benefit from competing, their age if they want to qualify for a young athlete grant, and any other relevant information. It must be the first time the player will compete at the state titles, and the player must live in New South Wales.
The NSW State Titles are an important event on the boccia calendar in Australia. They will be used by state selectors to determine the team sent to the national championships later in the year.
