How Can You Help?

As you will appreciate, being part of Team Lake Macquarie provides a tremendous sporting and cultural opportunity for local Lake Macquarie athletes, however does place some financial strain on the families involved. The Hunter Academy of Sport is responsible for team management, which includes travel arrangements, uniform, and equipment supply, for which we utilise local suppliers and agents. We would very much appreciate the opportunity to fundraise for these expenditures in support of our team prior to the team’s departure. Any contribution will aid these local athletes and their families in subsidising the cost of travel, uniforms and registration fees.
