I would really like some assistance with funding to help with the more coaching at present my parents fund 2 sessions a week with my coach and need 4-5 sessions a week with him this currently costs $65.00 per session for my parents. A full years cost would be around $12000.00 a year. Travel/accommodation to attend some select tournaments in Australia and also those that were unable to drive to within NZ. Based off Events i have attended this year and costs to date around $6000.0
At present my sport is fully funded via my Parents, Everything for my sport revolves around Equipment, Coaching Costs, Travel and Accommodation.
Generally I consume $3000.00- $4000.00 of Gear per year this covers Racquets x 8, Court Shoes x 4 ,Game Clothing, Balls, Grips, Re Strings etc .
Travel costs/ Accommodation Varies depending on how far we travel and to grow my game i need more exposure to players and tournaments within NZ, Australia and Malaysia as a junior.
Currently my parents have for this year to date put approx $8000.00 to this and by the end of the year this will be approximately $14000.00 + depending if i travel to Queensland for the Junior State open.
Coaching Costs are currently $5200.00 per year.
My family will struggles to raise the money needed for me to attend the higher end events and increase my required coaching.
I also have 1 other sibling in which he also is heavily involved in sport.
My Dad works 60+hrs a week to fund us and then runs us both all over the country for our chosen sports it effects some things we do as financially sometimes it restricts what and were I can attend events this also effect some things others in my family get to do as the financial impact is quite large.
My Family is behind me 100+% with support etc and also funding what they can with my sport I have a passion for this sport and know what i have to do to get where i want to go with this.
I train and play with dedication to succeed, have a good team of people around me with my parents-Family and a coach that i have seen help and lift my game to another level since starting with him @ the beginning of the year.
Your help will defiantly assist me in getting to were i know i can be and that’s at the top of my game.
