England Basketball - IM Basketball Funding Opportunity
Fresh from a hugely successful first year in operation, with over 8,000 players taking part in IM Basketball sessions across the country, England Basketball is pleased to announce more support for affiliated organisations looking to capitalise on this innovative way to increase participation.
To encourage even more young people to play basketball for fun, affiliated clubs, associations, leagues, secondary schools, colleges and universities can access funding to promote regular, weekly participation amongst those aged 14-25 in education.
Funding is available to run single or multiple programmes, creating regular intra and inter sessions 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.
Ball Again Funding Opportunity
With England Basketball's exciting initiative to increase adult participation, Ball Again, having attracted approximately 2,000 participants over the past season, 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.
