WHAT HAVE YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS BEEN SO FAR?

 Last year I was fortunate to be selected in a team to play at the 2018 National Youth Football Championships. Following that competition, I received an invitation to trial for the 2019 National Youth Championships for Boys by NNSW Football. The talent as always is exceptional and very competitive. In excess of 60 boys were trialling for which only 17 would make the final team.

WHY DID YOU APPLY FOR THIS GRANT?

This competition is extremely important to me . I see it as recognition for all the hard work and commitment to be selected and I see it as a natural next step in my sporting career.
I relish the opportunity to once again play at a National level and to have the opportunity to test myself against the best players from across the country all representing their respective States and Territories.

HOW WILL THIS GRANT BENEFIT YOU? AND HOW DO YOU PLAN ON USING IT?

Choosing to live locally and compete at a regional level and for a State team at a National level requires a big commitment in time, travel and associated costs. The combined cost of trials and for the Nationals is over $3,500 so this grant will be a way of thanking my dad for all his efforts in helping me get to all the training sessions, the Nationals, and everything else he does to allow me the chance to compete.

WHAT ARE YOU HOPES AND DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE?

The Championships provide an idea of what it takes to succeed at this level. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to play in these Championships, so my dream is to continue with this success.

WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST?

Being selected to participate in the Championships makes my dad very proud and it provides me with additional football skills and even some life lessons along the way.
