About the project

Hi, My name is Layke Shipley. I am 11 years old and I am a competitive swimmer and Surf Lifesaving Sports Athlete.

I live in a small country town in NSW. I am going from strength to strength in my swimming and surf sports and with your support I can continue to do so. I am doing this as an "Individual Athlete" as part of the Australian Sporting Foundation.

I am Raising money for the following:

-Accommodation and travel costs for me going to many swim and Surf Club meets around NSW and Australia.  

-Fees and Coaching

-Equipment and Gear

-Medical (Physio)

-Costs of Racing (some time it can be at least $200 just to race with some races being over $18 per race)

-entry fees to carnivals


I have a website called laykeshipley.com  that you may visit and it has a blog where you can keep up to date with my progress and to see how your funds support me in my sporting development over the years.
