Youth Training Fund

The TCYC Youth Training Fund

TCYC has received an extremely generous donation to be used for the benefit of the Cadet section of the club. The donation has been used to seed-fund a Youth Training Scheme to award grants to Cadets to part-fund initial training and race training progression.

Aims of the fund

  • To fund initial training where there is a financial need for assistance.
  • Or to fund race training for cadets who have committed to racing by consistent attendance at club races.

The grants will be proposed by the administrators and ratified by the Management Committee.

Grants will usually be for specific items such as entry fees and course fees with allowances for any equipment that requires funding.

The scheme will not necessarily fund every application.

The above criteria are subject to the discretion of the Trustees of the fund and the Management Committee.
