Sports representation and community recognition sponsorship

Each year the City supports over 100 residents with sponsorship in sport, education, arts and culture and music. In recent years, sponsorship has supported residents to compete at world championships in Tae Kwon Do, Softball, Blind Ten Pin Bowling, Ten Dance, Boxing, Disabled Sailing and Rowing.

What is Sports Representation and Community Recognition Sponsorship?

Sponsorship is awarded to support individuals who have achieved State or National selection. Applicants must be selected by their recognised State Sporting Association or National Governing Organisation.

Applications for Sports Representation and Community Recognition Sponsorship can be accepted at any time throughout the year.

Am I eligible?

Applicants must have been selected to represent Western Australia or Australia by a recognised State, National or International organisation. Where no relevant State, National or International organisation exists, a clear selection process at State, National or International level must be demonstrated. Where applicants have been self-selected to attend competitions or similar, this will not be funded.

Sponsorship is not awarded for:

  • Retrospective applications (applicant has already represented the State or Country)
  • Inclusions into teams that are not recognised by the applicants governing body, such as club or school representative teams

How can I apply?

Applicants can complete the Sports Representation and Community Recognition Sponsorship Application Form below and return by:

  • Posting your application form to City of Gosnells, PO Box 662 GOSNELLS WA 6990
  • Hand delivering to the City Civic Centre at 2120 Albany Highway, Gosnells

How much can I receive?

Sports Representation and Community Recognition Sponsorships are awarded in the following three categories:

  • State Competition/Event
    Successful applicants will receive $150 to represent either the State or Country at a competition/ event held intrastate (anywhere in Western Australia).
  • National Competition/Event
    Successful applicants will receive $200 to represent either the State or Country at a competition/ event held interstate (anywhere in Australia, excluding Western Australia).
  • International Competition/Event
    Successful applicants will receive $250 to represent either the State or Country at a competition/ event held overseas.

Individuals are eligible to apply for sponsorship for only one State (intrastate), one National (interstate) and one International (overseas) representation per financial year.

Sponsorship is not just for sport

Whilst the majority of applications support residents who are representing Western Australia in their chosen sport, sponsorship is not limited to just sport.

The City supports individuals in their chosen field of endeavour such as arts and culture, educational and music disciplines. Recently, the City has supported residents to represent Western Australia and/or Australia at International Music Festivals, Educational Tours and Cultural exchanges.
