Rising stars fund

Rising Stars Application

  • Overview

    North Lakes Sports Club's Rising Star Program provides financial assistance to local sportspeople selected for representation in their chosen sport. Rising Stars can be athletes, coaches or officials. It's our way of helping the next generation of sporting stars! At North Lakes Sports Club we understand that the costs required to compete in representative sport can quickly pile up, so let us lend a helping hand.
