YOUTH SPORT TEAM TRAVEL FUND APPLICATIONS OPEN

The latest application round of the Sport NZ Rural Travel Fund (RTF) which assists Ruapehu youth sport teams attend regular local sport competitions is now open.

The grant which is managed by Council on behalf of Sport NZ has $10,000 per annum to help local sport teams with young people aged between five to 19 years with travel expenses.

Customer Services Officer Vivek Bhuria said that at a time fuel costs are on the rise grants like the RTF played an important role in helping to ensure all our youth had the opportunity to take part in regional sport competitions.

“The previous funding round assisted teams representing boxing, netball, rugby, football and from local schools,” he said.

“Although the Ruapehu RTF has a relatively modest amount to distribute every year we try and ensure that we spread the available funds around as many teams as possible while ensuring the teams can make it to their competitions.”

Anyone involved with a sport team whose members fall within the age criteria, and who requires financial assistance for travel to take part in local competition, should definitely make an application.

The current application round closes on Friday 14th December with forms available from all Council offices and online.

Anyone requiring additional information can also call me directly via 07 895 8188 or 06 385 8364.”
