ROUND 2 OPEN UNTIL JULY 21ST 2021

WHAT IS THE FUNDING FOR? 

Sports clubs or organisations working primarily with young people ages 5-25 years old within the sport for development sector,

with an annual income of £75,000 or less, which are able to demonstrate that the Covid-19 pandemic has adversely affected them, 

either operationally or financially, and which require funding to save, resume or adapt their activity. 

 

What is sport for development? 

The application form will ask you to explain how you are using sport for development, by this, we mean that the sports activity you provide also provides additional benefits to the young people. For example 

Developmental benefits

Development from sport goes beyond learning new physical skills. Sport helps children develop better ways to cope with the highs and lows of life.

When they’re playing a sport, children learn to lose. Being a good loser takes maturity and practice. Losing teaches children to bounce back from disappointment, cope with unpleasant experiences and is an important part of becoming resilient.

Playing sport helps children learn to control their emotions and channel negative feelings in a positive way. It also helps children to develop patience and understand that it can take a lot of practice to improve both their physical skills and what they do in school.

Emotional benefits

Physical activity has been shown to stimulate chemicals in the brain that make you feel better. So playing sport regularly improves children’s overall emotional wellbeing.

Research shows there’s a link between playing sport and self-esteem in children. The support of the team, a kind word from a coach, or achieving their personal best will all help children to feel better about themselves.

Social benefits

Playing in a team helps children to develop many of the social skills they will need for life. It teaches them to cooperate, to be less selfish, and to listen to other children.

It also gives children a sense of belonging. It helps them make new friends and builds their social circle outside school.

An important part of playing in a team is accepting discipline. Playing sport means children are expected to follow rules, accept decisions and understand that they could be penalised for bad behaviour. It teaches them to take directions from the coach, referees and other adults. Sport also teaches them about teamwork.
