EIGHTEEN of the City of Melville’s brightest sporting talents have been award Youth Sports Scholarship (YSS) to help them achieve their goals.

Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said the sports scholarships empowered young Melville athletes to reach new sporting heights by providing free access to the City’s award-winning LeisureFit Centres for a year.

“Every year we are dumbfounded by the exceptional talent and high level of commitment from the City’s sporting youth. It is with great pride that we support these young athletes and look forward to seeing their continued success in the future,” he said.

“It was great to see some familiar faces of previous YSS winners, demonstrating the continued dedication and determination of our future adult sporting stars.

“With a variety of sporting activities sponsored this year, I look forward to seeing our sporting stars compete at international level – we may have future Melville Olympic heroes among us.”

The YSS runs annually and invites City of Melville applicants aged between 12 and 19 to apply during July and August with supporting documentation from the appropriate WA state sporting organisation.
