Sports Boost is a grassroots initiative from Colonial First State that aims to support junior elite Australian athletes aged 10-18 as they strive to fulfil their sporting potential. Over the last five years, Colonial First State has given away over $160k in Sports Boost prizes.

Sports Boost showcases the talents of elite Australian junior athletes and teams throughout the year. It culminates in a final round of public voting to determine the overall $20,000 Sports Boost winner and the 4 runners-up who will all receive a Sports Boost of $2,000.


  • Participation in this promotion is open to Australian residents between the ages of 10-18 competing in a sport recognised by a registered sports organisation.

  • To nominate an individual or team, a participant must complete the following steps:

    • Go to the Colonial First State Sports Boost entry form at and nominate your elite athlete or team that deserves a $20,000 Sport Boost
    •  Specify the sport that the junior athlete or team competes in.

    Explain why the nominee deserves a $20,000 Sports Boost how the $20,000 Sports Boost is intended to be used by the nominated athlete or team.

  • Colonial First State and their expert judging panel will shortlist 5 athletes who will move through to a final public voting round for their chance to win the $20,000 Sports Boost grand prize – $15,000 in prize money and $5,000 coaching.
