About sports funding and grants
Travel funding is available for sports clubs and associations from Jersey Sport.
Some travel companies also provide concessions.
Jersey Sport travel grants
The Travel Grant aims to support Jersey athletes to develop and enable them to compete in competition or training camps by providing financial support with travel costs.
The Travel Grant Advisory Committee, appointed by Jersey Sport, will consider applications for travel grants from sports clubs and associations. A total of £125,000 is available through the Travel Grant Fund in 2018.
Typically, individual travel grants will be a minimum of £40 per person.
Activities that might be funded include;
Travel costs for athletes under the age of 23 to compete in competitions or training camps at a higher level than available on-island
Travel costs for a one-off event or series of events enabling disabled athletes to partake in competitions and training camps
Travel costs for a championship or series of events constituting a competition or training camp at a higher level than available on-island for senior performance athletes (over 23) on a recognised international development pathway
The Travel Grant Advisory Committee will also consider funding travel for coaches and chaperones to accompany athletes under the age of 18 or vulnerable adults.
Full details and guidance on funding, dates of the funding rounds and how to apply are available on the Jersey Sport website.
