The Development Group of the ASA South East Region has recognised the issues faced by some athletes and their families with the high cost of travelling long distances to training camps. Unfortunately we are not able to support all athletes and the majority of families will still have to pay all the costs, but we have brought in two new schemes to start in April 2013:
1. To help athletes from low-income families to attend the Beacon Programme. More details and application form are avaliable here.
2. To help athletes facing exceptional costs to attend national training camps – such as air travel from the Channel Islands to the mainland, or travel to Manchester for Water Polo training. More details and application form are avaliable here.
Awards are limited to £500 per athlete per year.
We hope these bursaries will allow talented athletes to attend such training and that it will make a difference to their future success in the sport.
