Sports funding and grants

​​About sports f​unding and grants

Funding is available for sports clubs and associations from the Advisory Council and the Jersey Clubmark scheme.  

Some travel companies also provide concessions.

Sport Advisory Council travel grants

The Sport Advisory Council will consider applications for travel grants from sports clubs and associations.

The Council includes representatives from Jersey Sport, the Jersey Sports Council and Economic Development, Tourism, Sport and Culture.

You could get help to travel to the UK (up to £40), St Malo (up to £25) or the UK and beyond (up to £60).

The Advisory Council will also consider funding travel for:

  • chaperones with a ratio of one adult to four juniors (under 18s)
  • team officials with a ratio of one official to ten team members

Arrangements are currently being made for how 2018 applications for funding will be made. Details of the new process will be made available as soon as they are finalised.

If you have any questions about applying for a travel grant, please email Andrew Sugden, Economic Development, Tourism sport and Culture.

Jersey Clubmark funding

If you're already accredited or working towards the Jersey Clubmark scheme, you could get financial support for coach education up to Level 2, or a short film to be made about your club or event.

You can only apply for funding for one coach education course per year.  You must sign an agreement setting out the terms and conditions of funding.  We will take account of any funding that you have already received from the Advisory Council for coach education courses.

Level 1 coach education

You can get support for the travel and accommodation costs of the visiting tutor and the cost of facility hire.

The following is not covered:

  • level 1 coach education courses off-island
  • subsistence for the tutor
  • tutor travel costs within Jersey
  • course fees

If your club or association is able to deliver a Level 1 coaching course in-house (without bringing a tutor to the island) you could get up to £200 towards course fees.

Level 2 coach education

You can get support for the air or ferry travel and accommodation costs of up to three candidates to travel off-island up to three times in order to get a Level 2 coaching qualification.  You can also get funding for up to 50% of the course fees for these candidates.

The following is not covered:

  • subsistence for the candidates
  • bus, train or taxi fares

If your club or association is able to deliver a Level 2 coaching course in-house (without bringing a tutor to the island) you could get up to 75% of the total cost of the course, depending on the number of candidates.
