The Gold Coast Academy of Sport is excited to announce that in 2016 it has joined with the Carbine Club to support a young up and coming athlete in their pursuit of excellence in sport. This year “The Glynis Nunn” award will be given to an athlete between the ages of 15 and 18 who is striving towards the Commonwealth Games in 2018. The athlete will receive a Bursary of $5000 over a 12 month period with the GCAS selecting and monitoring the process.
The Carbine Club of Queensland is proud to work with the Academy to help promote Junior sport in Queensland, in keeping with the ideals of The Carbine Club of Queensland. Glynis said, “I am very humbled and pleased to have my name associated with a program that would be helping promising junior athletes in Queensland.” it will be the Academy’s responsibility to select a most deserving athlete from applications received.
The athlete will need to demonstrate high standards of responsibility, resilience, courage, dedication, humility, dedication and social skills. It is hoped that the bursary will help the chosen athlete, who may have had to cope with significant life challenges in their training and competition. Only athletes who do not receive any financial support should apply. Applications are available on the GCAS website or by clicking on the link below.
The board of the GCAS would like to thank the Carbine Club for their generous support of a promising athlete and look forward to the association in the future.
