Sport Bay of Plenty, BayTrust and Acorn Foundation are proud to announce the recipients of the second round of 2017 Athlete and Coach Scholarships.
These scholarships are gifted with an aim to support and assist Bay of Plenty sporting talent to achieve on the national and international stage, and allow coaches to develop new skills that can be delivered back to the community.
The BayTrust Scholarships are funded from contributions to Sport Bay of Plenty’s CoachForce programme and fully support one of BayTrust’s key outcomes: active communities.
These scholarships are open to sports people residing in the region covered by BayTrust and Sport Bay of Plenty, with the intention that the coaching expertise and sporting talent is retained in the Bay.
The Athlete Scholarship applications were available to any young athlete from the Bay of Plenty aged 16-23 years, who has achieved national representation at their sport, while the Coach Scholarships are for coaches currently coaching at a recognised and endorsed level by their respective Regional Sporting Organisation (or equivalent body).
This round also includes an annual scholarship donated by Christine Tustain through the Acorn Foundation. This scholarship recognises a young athlete from the Western Bay of Plenty who is excelling in sport and life in the community, as well as on the world stage.
Applications highlight the exceptional sporting and coaching talent that exists within the Bay of Plenty region, and these scholarships demonstrate an appreciation for the hard work, commitment and dedication that these athletes and coaches give to their sport and communities.
