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

2014 Fundraising Kit Revealed

The North Derbyshire Chargers have launched their Novelty Fundraising Kit for the 2014 season – comprising sublimated shirt, sublimated shorts, custom socks and a choice of two vests – both adult and kid sizes.  Orders can be placed online via our official photographers web site at - anyone holding a current club membership for 2014 should order directly from the club.

The launch of the kit coincides with the start of the club’s 2014 fundraising programme which involves all squads within the club identifying, planning and running their own event to raise money for the club, local charities and Rugby League related charities.

Chairman, Ged Connolly-Thompson, said: “This is a new venture for the 2014 season involving all players, family members and supporters in a programme of events which will last until the end of the season.  All money raised for the club will be reinvested into player development whilst also supporting a number of charities who work closely with the club.”

To ensure low prices, all orders will be held until 12pm on Monday, August 25th when a bulk order will be placed.  Whilst it may still be possible to order items after this date, it is likely that prices will increase.
