Recipients of the Youth Sporting Scholarships said:
"This scholarship will give me the opportunity to excel in strength and conditioning in the gym which is really important in the sport of triathlon for injury prevention and technique. Swimming more than five times a week puts pressure on my bank account as well, so being able to swim as I please and not have to worry about the cost, I am very grateful for." - Jonathan Sammut - Triathlon
"The scholarship has been a great help in assisting me with my sport. I train at LeisureFit Booragoon four-to-five times a week, especially since my club is now based there. LFB is such a great facility and I’m really grateful for the City of Melville to provide me with free access. I use the pool, gym and classes, which has really helped me train well and reach my goals, such as, being selected to be part of the Junior National Synchro Team." - Alessandra Ho - Synchronised Swimming
"This scholarship will help keep costs down as my sport is currently unfunded in Australia, meaning we have to pay for basically everything. This scholarship will help me continue my dreams of going to the 2020 Olympics. Thank you!" - Kazia Zenke - Synchronised Swimming
