Updates to Emerging Athlete Pathways

Our Emerging Athlete Pathways program aims to foster the development of young athletes and officials (such as coaches, referees and scorers), by providing financial assistance to help alleviate the costs associated with attending championship events at a state, national and international level. 

We understand that many of your athletes may be interested in this program and wanted to make you aware of some key changes to the current program. For any events held on or after 1 April 2022, the funding amounts have increased for each event category as follows: 

  • $500 for state or state school events (previously $200)
  • $600 for national or national school events (previously $400)
  • $800 for international events (previously $600)

All other program eligibility remains unchanged and any applications for events commencing on or before 31 March 2022 will receive the previous funding amount. 

Could you please note these changes and update any information you may have on your website or included in selection information packs as necessary.
To reflect these changes, amendments have been made to the information on the ‘Check if you are eligible’ page on the EAP website, for your reference.

Thank you for your ongoing support for this program. Don't forget to notify the department of any changes to your eligible events by updating the EAP spreadsheet and sending it through to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
