Charity Race Night

The North Derbyshire Chargers are hosting a charity race night on September 19th starting at 7pm at the Chesterfield Panthers club house on Dunston Road, Chesterfield.

The event is to raise funds toward the ongoing player development programme at the North Derbyshire Chargers and to support Heartbeat of Sport in their work to raise awareness of sudden cardiac arrest, especially within sport.

Building on the success of last season’s sponsored walk which allowed the club to invest in a defibrillator and associated training, the event is to raise revenue to allow the charity to continue their programme of education around professional and community clubs.

Tickets prices are: £10 for anyone over the age of 13 (which includes a pie & pea supper) or £4 for children aged 12 and under (which includes a hot dog).

There are also opportunities to sponsor races or horses – these can be purchased on the night or prior to the event by using the buttons below:

Last Man Standing Fundraising Competition

The club have recently teamed up with to run a ‘Last Man Standing’ competition starting on October 4th. The principle is pretty simple – £10 to enter and the competition is based upon the results of the Barclays Premier League.

Choose which team you think will win that week and if you’re correct you move on to do the same the week after, if your team draws or loses then you’re out. The last person remaining takes home the prize pot.

You can read the full terms and conditions and enter online at:

A sign up sheet and copy of the rules is also available in this guide.

Rules are:
1. Pay your entry fee at week 1 — no need to pay again. Some of the fee goes to support the club or charity running the competition, and the rest goes into the pot to be won.
2. Each week, simply pick a team playing a match that week – if your team wins, you go through, lose or draw and you’re out.
3. You can only pick a team to win once in a competition, so be tactical about who you pick and when.
4. All selections must be in 1 hour before kick off of the first match — you can change your pick up to this deadline.
5. Rounds of fixtures may take place on weekends or mid-week.
6. If your team’s game is postponed you are automatically put through to the next round.
7. If you forget to pick a team, we’ll randomly pick one for you for that round.
8. Last Man continues until only one person remains and wins the pot. If two participants remain at the end, the pot is equally distributed; however, if more than two remain everyone goes through to the next round. If all remaining players lose in the last round, they all go through to the next round.

Coach Funding Opportunities

Torch Trophy Trust bursaries provide financial support to individuals or groups wishing to undertake training to enhance their knowledge or improve their coaching skills to assist their club, organisation or community to develop their chosen sport.

You can apply for one of the limited number of bursaries that are granted each year if you are:

* a volunteer
* you want to improve your skills
* your governing body is keen to help out but can’t find the funds.
* Grants of up to £1,000 are available, but they do not account for more than 50% of the total costs involved, although exceptional applications may be considered.

A number of coaching opportunities will be available for the 2015 pre-season as well as other volunteering opportunities.

A letter from the relevant governing body must support the application. Applications are welcome from all sports including disability and youth.

This round will close on the 12th September 2014 at 5pm
