Women & Girls Kick Start Grant 2017 Kicks Off

Women & Girls Kick Start Grant 2017 Kicks Off!

East Riding County FA are launching the Kick Start Grant for 2017 to support the development of new female provision within the County.

After the success of last year’s grants, the East Riding Kick Start Grant is returning.

With the FA announcing their new strategy in March around Women and Girls football with the target of doubling participation by 2020, we want to support clubs as much as possible to help them to develop new provision for females within the County.

In 2016 five clubs applied for the grant, developing;

  • 2 x  new Under 8’s teams
  • 1 x new Under 10’s team
  • 1 x new Under 12’s team
  • 1 new Women’s Walking Football session

For 2017 there are 6 grants available to develop new Women’s or girl’s provision.

The offer for the Women and Girl’s grant is:
