Each year, the British Softball Federation sets aside a certain amount of money to be awarded as Development Grants to softball leagues, clubs, teams and occasionally to individuals or other types of organisations. The purpose is to help support projects that can advance the development and growth of slowpitch or fastpitch softball, either locally or nationally, and applications can be made at any time during the year.
Grants are usually limited to a maximum of £300, but the BSF can give out larger grants if warranted.
Most grants are to help support projects such as player clinics or coach-training courses, umpire training, setting up a junior team or a new adult team, player recruitment, facility improvement etc, though other kinds of projects will certainly be considered.
Over the past few years, the BSF has underspent its Development Grant budget, so new applications will be welcomed.
Applications for a BSF Development Grant can be made here.
If you wish to discuss an application in advance, please contact BSF Administrator Bob Fromer.
