With competitions coming up for swimmers Emily Weston and Jackson Schultz, they are grateful towards receiving Ray Harvey grants from Goulburn Mulwaree Council.
They received $300 each at the Civic Centre on December 16, 2020 and both were grateful towards council.
Emily's mother Bianca Weston said being able to pay for accommodation would help Emily with her performances.
"Quite often, we have to travel to and from the competition venue each day because by the time we buy our race wear, food and fuel, we just can't manage the cost for accommodation," Weston said.
"The grant will mean she can stay at the place of competition and hopefully perform better as fatigue won't be a factor.
"Depending on the COVID-19 , she'll also use it to travel to the country titles."
Jackson's mother Dani Schultz said he would put the funds to good use.
"It will help with his costs for his competition at nationals and country championships," Ms Schultz said.
Goulburn Amateur Swim Club was also presented with a one off grant of $3000 to run a swimming program with Olympic athlete James Magnussen.
