A useful tool when applying for grants:
International Competition Development Fund (ICDF)
The International Competition and Development Fund (ICDF) supports projects and events that either clearly fall into the "international competition" category or can be demonstrated to further the "development" of the sport in general or a particular discipline. "Development" predominantly denotes workshops and seminars for the training of judges and officials, and other activities carried out for the development of competencies, including opportunities for skill practice (competitions and events).
Please be advised that the 2016/17 application period has now closed. Applicants will be notified on the outcome of their application in the coming weeks.
Club and group insurance information is available on the insurance section of this website
