We give away top of the range playing kits to junior sports teams from the most disadvantaged areas in Northern England. This programme is focused towards teams for 6 – 14 year olds and provides essential support in the earliest stages of their sporting lives. Junior teams within this age range are run by volunteers with very little financial support.
If we look at the general running costs of a junior sports team, they must pay for playing kits, playing/training equipment, venue hire for training and in many instances playing, essential volunteer education courses, league and NGB affiliation fees, insurances and much more!
Dependent on the sport and their location, these running costs could be anything from £2,000 – £20,000 a year for the average junior sports team. These mounting figures demonstrates the massive need for initiatives like the Junior Sports Kit Programme to support and sustain sport at the earliest stages.
The junior sports kit programme will be opening later in 2018 – keep checking the website for updates or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
