JK Sports Assistance Program

The JK Foundation’s Sport Assistance Program’s aim is to reduce the barriers experienced by regional young people in pursuing pathways in sport. This can come in the form of assisting with travel costs, coaching and mentoring or assisting with other financial barriers that regional young people experience in engaging in sport. Assistance ranges from contributions towards regional representative opportunities, fuel and travel assistance and ongoing scholarships with mentoring and coaching. Apply here.
