Club Development Workshops

During June and July, Tyne & Wear Sport will be delivering a series of workshops for Sports Clubs in the North East, all workshops take place at Parsons House, Washington NE37 1EZ.

 This workshop aims to provide clubs with an understanding of the different community club structures. Sports clubs are made up of various structures and by attending this workshop you will gain an understanding of what structure is right for your club to enable further success and to ensure sustainability.

 

This workshop aims to increase awareness of how to complete a Sport England Small Grants and Awards for All application form. The workshop will provide an overview of the application process and offer guidance on the key information required to submit a robust application to Sport England and the Big Lottery Fund.

 

This workshop aims to increase awareness of completing a Sport England Community Asset Fund application. This fund is the new capital fund dedicated to enhancing the spaces in local communities. The workshop will provide an overview of the application process, offer guidance on the key information required to submit a robust application and provide an opportunity for clubs to ask questions around their own specific projects.

British Cycling Coach Education Bursary Update

British Cycling have updated the way its Coach Education bursary funds are distributed, giving opportunities to more clubs to apply than ever before:

 

Bursary Allocation:

Go-Ride Clubmark Accredited Club: 2 x Priority Funds 1 x Open Fund 1 x Clubmark Renewal (where applicable)


Go-Ride Registered Club: 2 x Priority Funds 1 x Open Fund


Youth Cycling Club (non Go-Ride): 1 x Priority Fund 1 x Open Fund


Standard Cycling Club: 1 x Any Fund

 

Priority Fund 1 – Young Coaches
A priority within all sports is to encourage younger club members to take on and consider a route into coaching. With that in mind, we will offer priority funding to any club members between the ages of 16-21 looking to qualify as a coach. We want clubs to show a commitment to their future and we see investing in younger member’s development as an integral part of this process.


Priority Fund 2 – Female Coaches
Again, a priority across almost all sports is the increase in the number of female coaches. It is recognised that there is an under-representation of female coaches in cycling. We feel it is important to try and encourage clubs to invest in female volunteers and coaches. By recruiting more women into coaching this will hopefully lend itself to an increase in female participation in the sport.


Open Fund
The open fund is related to all applications that do not fall within the Priority Fund. We understand that it is still vital to recognise all potential applicants, especially those who already commit a significant amount of time to the sport, so whilst there may be a limited number of bursaries available we are still keen to see applications from this group.
