Club Leaders - December
Posted on 11 Dec 2013 at 10:09 by Bryony Gibbs (0 user comment)
As 2013 draws to a close, the Club Leaders team are keen to keep conversation flowing with local clubs.
This December sees the return of the Twitter Takeover sessions with Pete managing @Club_Leaders from 11.30am – 1.30pm on Friday 13th December.
This is your opportunity to connect with Pete and the rest of the Club Leaders team to get a real time response to your club’s burning issues. They will be on hand to help address the latest hot topics for grassroots sports clubs; from accounts to VAT, organisation structure, marketing and business planning.
Whether you’re in the office or out and about with a smartphone to hand, you can get involved by following @Club_Leaders and #TweetPete from 11.30am on Friday 13th December.
Not on Twitter? Not an issue. The Club Leaders’ forum is a great place to ask questions and receive responses from not only the team, but other clubs. All clubs and individuals need to do is register online; it’s free!
You can also access responses to some of their frequently asked questions. These cover a range of topics, from CASCs and CIOs to VAT and PAYE.
Remember, clubs and their members can always get in touch with Club Leaders directly via firstname.lastname@example.org. They are always here to help with the business side of things.
Changes to the South East Region Bursary Scheme for Teachers and Coaches
Posted on 02 Dec 2013 at 17:50 by Bryony Gibbs (0 user comment)
The scheme has been extended so that more bursaries will be available in special circumstances.
The South East Region provides bursaries to applicants from swim21 accredited clubs towards the cost of teacher and coach ASA/UKCC & SCUK courses. The overall aim is to improve the standard of teaching and coaching within the Region and as a result improve the standard of our athletes throughout the sport. Normally only three candidates from a club can receive a bursary award in one financial year, however for some clubs and some disciplines this has resulted in too few people booking for a course and the course being cancelled.
To tackle this problem clubs may apply for additional bursaries but they must put forward a case as to why this is required. This is aimed at areas where it is difficult to get enough candidates to run a course, such as the Isle of Wight, Jersey and Guernsey, or courses for the disciplines with fewer clubs (diving, water polo and synchro). However other circumstances may also be considered.
A copy of the updated criteria and application form is avaliable here.

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.
