Rising athletic stars in Broadland can now apply for a Sports Community Grant to help with the cost of training or competing.

The grants are available to those living in the district who are currently competing at a regional level or higher to help with outgoings such as coaching costs, competition entry fees, equipment or physiotherapy.

Grants of up to £125 are available per athlete, with a closing date of February 19, 2017. Funds are limited and are subject to availability.

To be eligible, athletes must live in Broadland, be competing at a minimum of regional level and must participate in a sport recognised by Sport England.

All applications must be made on official forms and submitted by post or email. A supporting statement is required from a coach and this can be emailed to or posted to the Economic Development team at Broadland District Council.

Official forms can be downloaded here.
