2019 START Water Polo Grants Programme

START Water Polo is a Swim England funded programme designed to increase the number of young water polo players in the club structures.

Applications are open to any Swim England affiliated clubs or sections that intend to deliver new sessions of Water Polo and provide a clear exit route to retain the new participants.  

The Programme
Affiliated clubs or sections have the opportunity to apply for small grants of up to £500 to support their delivery of new activity. 

The investment can be spent on the following areas:
  • New junior balls and ball carriers
  • New junior caps
  • Level 1 coaching qualifications to increase capacity
  • Additional pool hire

Each project should clearly demonstrate how the funding will be used to increase numbers into classes for the desired Stages. Applications will be assessed on the level of impact of the project and the potential to attract and retain high numbers of new participants into structured water polo sessions.

All applications should be submitted online via the following application form at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WPStart19
The application deadline is Monday 14 October 2019 after which time a panel will assess applications and select those that will receive the investment. 

Andy Fuller, Swim England Water Polo Development Manager, said: “In previous years, this funding has been used to give clubs a valuable boost to their water polo programme. We look forward to helping many more clubs to recruit new faces as we continue to focus on providing opportunities for young players to remain in the sport.”

Please share details of the Programme within your local networks.
