What is a National or International Sport Championship?

To be eligible, a national or international sport championship event must be:

• conducted on behalf of the national sporting organisation (a national sporting organisation is recognised as such by the Australian Sports Commission);
• a competition between a minimum of four states and/or territories;
• a competition recognised as a national or an international sport championship; and • an event where one or more national or international champions are declared, or national points are awarded.

Approximately $40 000 will be available for allocation in 2016-17. As limited funding is available, organisations will be funded on a ‘first-in’ basis.

A maximum of $6 000 is available per organisation and per sport during 2016-17. Where a sport, as defined by the Australian Sports Commission, has one national sporting organisation but multiple disciplines/organisations, the total amount of funding available to that sport will be limited to $6 000.

A national or international championship ‘series’ consists of a number of stages (or mini-events) held across a number of locations where the same teams or individuals compete, and a champion is declared through the accumulation of points.

Events where two or more championships are awarded, e.g. men’s and women’s, juniors and seniors, multi-disciplines, are considered one event. Funding limits are detailed below:
