City’s Youth Sporting Stars Awarded Scholarships

11 September 2018

Eighteen of the City’s brightest sporting stars were awarded with Youth Sports Scholarships (YSS) at a celebratory presentation held at LeisureFit Booragoon.

City of Melville Deputy Mayor Cr Woodall said the scholarship aims to assist the City’s young talent with their training and encourage their continued dedication to sporting success by giving them support to nurture and enhance their outstanding sporting abilities.

“By providing free access to the City’s award winning LeisureFit Centres for an entire year, we are able to support young Melville athletes in pursuit of reaching their sporting goals with many athletes currently competing on an international level.” Cr Woodall said.

“It was great to see some familiar faces of previous YSS winners, demonstrating the continued dedication and determination of our future adult sporting stars.”
