Funding Opportunities available for IM Basketball and Ball Again
Please see below opportunity to help England Basketball deliver their targets and apply for funding to deliver either IM Basketball or Ball Again, deadline 24th May!
IM Basketball Summer Funding Opportunity
In response to ever increasing demand from young people to play basketball for fun, we are pleased to announce support for affiliated clubs, associations, leagues, colleges and universities keen to encourage year round participation amongst those aged 14-25 in education through IM Basketball.
Eligible organisations can apply for funding to run the programme or multiple programmes, creating regular intra and inter competitions primarily in educational environments.
In addition, those organisations able to demonstrate success in attracting new participants to the sport are eligible to receive a Participation Bonus. This means that for each and every new participant taking part regularly* in a funded IM Basketball programme, the responsible organisation will receive an increased amount of £5.
Full details can be found by visiting www.imbasketball.co.uk and clicking on "IM Basketball Funding".
Ball Again Summer Funding Opportunity
In light of the early success of England Basketball's fast-growing initiative to increase adult participation, Ball Again, we are pleased to announce further funding available to affiliated clubs, associations, leagues as well as leisure centres, leisure operators and local authorities.
Eligible organisations can apply for funding to start up a new Ball Again session or multiple sessions aimed at those aged 16+ and no longer in full time education.
Those organisations able to demonstrate success in attracting new participants to the sport will also benefit from the 'Baller Gain incentive fund. An increased payment of £10 per participant taking part regularly* in a funded Ball Again programme is available to the responsible organisation.
