Aspirations 4Kids in Sport
Aspirations4Kids in Sport truly value the importance of investing in our Queensland school students and leveraging the huge role sport can play in improving the lives of thousands of Australians annually. They are committed to helping children in need aged 10-19 from any of the 1,816 schools around the state, who want to participate in representative school sport programs but are restricted from doing so. A ‘needs’ assessment against our five causes categories helps us to determine the most worthy individual cases any of which may fall within the categories of hardship, disabilities, pathways, Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders and education.
