The Colonial First State Sports Boost is a grassroots initiative designed to support the sports stars and teams of the future. Since its launch in 2013 we have given over $160K in Sports Boosts to ensure that nothing stands in the way of young Aussies’ sporting dreams.


Different to many other sponsorship and funding programs, Sports Boost doesn’t restrict itself to just one sport and aims to develop underfunded grassroots sports. In our fifth year of the program we’re looking for the best young athletes and teams Australia has to offer, to help give them a leg-up, a helping hand – the boost they need.

How to enter

If you’re aged 10-18 and playing in a recognised sport or team, at an elite junior level; enter Sports Boost now for your chance to win $20,000. Nominations are open from the 5th March to the 1st April 2018, so be sure to enter soon. Good luck!

Congratulations to 2017 Sports Boost winner Sofia Sakalis.

Sofia was judged the winner following a month-long public voting round. The young Victorian soccer star is now the proud recipient of $20,000 to help her continue to achieve her sporting dreams.
