Are you a sportsperson/team who competes at a high (county or above) level, and wishes to compete off-Island? Do you need to travel off-Island in order to gain sports coaching/refereeing/judging qualifications? Are you a sports group who wish to bring a professional referee/coach over to Guernsey? If the answer to any of the above is yes, then the Sports Development Unit may be able to help you out. The Unit administers the Sports Development Fund, the Under 18s Fund which is used to develop local sports people by helping to fund activities outside of Guernsey.
Sports Guernsey exists to help provide funding for sports events which attract visiting competitors and spectators to Guernsey and which are also going to be attractive events for the local community. Sports Guernsey is particularly interested in helping sports with funding for new or one off Sports Events with the above aims. Sports Guernsey have been instrumental in helping with a whole host of sporting events.
