New Funding Opportunities Announced!
The South West Women's Committee are excited to announce the continuation of funding opportunites for the South West Region. As part of the SW Committee's development plan we are giving players and clubs the opportunity to grow and develop the game of lacrosse within the region. Applications will be accepted at any time and the committee will aim to return with a decision within 4-6weeks from the date of submission.
There are 2 funding opportunities available:
1. Club Small Grants and Covid Recovery Fund
Clubs can bid for up to £500 to help them to deliver a project that will expand existing activity or kick start new activity, or to help them with plans to grow their club after the dessimation of Covid-19 and the 19-20 and 20-21 seaons. There is no constraint on what the funding application can be used for, but a few examples could include equipment, coaching time, facility hire or Covid-19 'Return to Lacrosse' equipment. You will need to be clear about the need for the project and how the funding will impact the development of the sport in your area. You will also need to include a statement about how you will record/measure the impact of the grant to be able to report back to the SW committee.
2. Workforce Bursary
Individuals within the South West Region will be able to apply for a bursary to cover the cost of a coaching or umpiring course. These bursaries can be applied for in advance or be retrospective. The individual must complete and pass the course before the funding is released. You will be required to explain why you feel you need the bursary, and what impact this will have on your club.
Please note that all coaches and officials must be registered with English Lacrosse. The Workforce bursary will only cover the cost of the course and individuals will be required to pay the registration fee themselves.
Please check the English Lacrosse Website for up to date information on courses in the Region.
