ASA South East Region has recently put together new policies for Hardship Funding and Start Up Funding.
ASA South East Region recognise that aquatics can be a relatively expensive sport, in particular for top athletes and they may experience funding difficulties. The Region does not provide hardship funding, but encourages clubs, athletes and their families to actively seek external funding. Please click here to see the policy.
ASA South East Region is pro-active in the development of the sport within the region, in particular through the formation of new clubs and new sections of existing clubs in the disciplines of Water Polo, Synchro and Diving. In setting up new clubs or new sections, funding may be needed to pay in advance for pool time and other items, before any funds are accumulated from athletes paying membership and training fees, and any grants from funding bodies have been received. The Region will assist clubs through the Regional Development Officers and if necessary the provision of temporary funding to overcome cash-flow issues.
