Women in Coaching Grant Initiative

SwimBC is pleased to make available TWO coaching grants in support of the Women in Coaching initiative with the assistance and support of Swimming/Natation Canada and other funding partners.

These grants will be used for the successful applicant’s professional development in the form of visitation and mentoring opportunities. Clubs are encouraged to similarly support the Women in Coaching initiative by being willing to provide additional funds to cover the successful applicant’s costs above and beyond what this grant may cover, and/or to fund other projects which may be beyond the scope of this grant.

Projects should be completed by December 31, 2010.

Submissions must include a budget for travel (air or kilometers), per diem ($45.00 per day) accommodation and other associated costs.
