Opportunities for all Clubs and Members to Get Involved

It is great to see so much activity taking place across the country with many volunteers, players and officials involved. It is that time of the year again when we have opportunities available for clubs and members to apply for and all of our programmes and initiatives have been designed, reviewed and updated in consultation with our members to ensure they are meeting their needs. Feel free to look at our YouTube Channel, and we have some links below, to see the impact of many of these programmes.


The closing dates are fast approaching and everything listed below is in place to assist and support so please share with the relevant members of your club. There are details on how to apply for each opportunity.
