SPORTSTART

Funding Assistance for Families


SportStart is a funding initiative available from Sport Tasman for families where financial hardship is a barrier to participation in physical activity.

The purpose of  SportStart is to allow more children and young people to take part in physical activity opportunities - by providing some financial assistance. We believe with the support of sports clubs and organisations across our region we will be able to encourage and support more young people into sport and physical activity thereby directly contributing to the health of both the individual and the community. 


​​​​​​​Current Eligibility:

  • Region - Nelson/Tasman/Marlborough
  • Age Group - 5-18 year olds
  • Limit - Up to $30 per child/per family (ages 5 to 12yrs)
    ​​​            ​​​​Up to $50 per child/per family (ages 13 to 18yrs)
  • Period - Twice a year

Presentation of applications can only be made through clubs or organisations that have registered with the SportStart programme as a provider. Downloadable forms are in the column on the right.

On acceptance of an application, the process commences and when approved the grant is paid directly to the club or organisation. Any shortfall is the responsibility of the family.

As SportStart is a very popular funding medium for many families, we are constantly sourcing avenues to keep the programme alive and to enable us to effectively reach more families and get more children focused on sport participation.
