Grant Funding opportunity for Sports Clubs

Tipperary Sports Partnership aims to develop sport and increase physical activity in the Premier County.

To that end, they have created a fund to support the setting up of new clubs or sections, and assist club’s to increase their capacity to deliver sport and physical activity and in turn increase membership and sports participation locally, and support clubs to return to sport.

The Coaching Section aims to support and develop quality coaching in Tipperary and to encourage all coaches / volunteers to undertake appropriate education and training. The Development Section aims to encourage the set up of new clubs and assist existing clubs to increase participation.

The COVID-19 / Return to Sport Section aims to support clubs, which do not have the finances to implement COVID-19 related hygiene and social distancing protocols and support the return to sporting activities only.

This fund is limited and only clubs who did not receive funding under the Covid-19 Club Small Grant Scheme in 2020 or from their National Governing Body can apply under this section.

Priority will be given to key target groups as identified in TSP Strategic Plan such as disadvantaged areas, older adults, young people, people with disabilities, women and girls, unemployed and ethnic minorities.

There is a maximum allocation of €1,000 available per Club under the Coaching & Development Section. Applicants can apply under either the Development or Coaching Section or both up to the maximum amount.

There is a €1,500 limit per club under the COVID-19 / Return to Sport Section. Eligible Clubs can apply under the Coaching & Development Section and the COVID-19 / Return to Sport Sections to a max of €2,500.

This Funding Scheme is supported by Sport Ireland and Tipperary County Council. The closing date for receipt of applications is Thursday 27th May at 4.00pm.

Further information, criteria and application forms are available on TSP website – www.tipperarysports.ie or by contacting the office. Tel: 0761 06 6201 E-mail: info@tipperarysports.ie
