This is a record number of clubs and, for many, this will be the first time managing a Sports Capital Grant funding receipt, and it can be a challenging process.

National Club Development Manager, James Geraghty, will hold a workshop to help clubs answer any questions they might have about navigating the system and using their grant, from receipt of funds, record keeping, reporting, project oversight, and project changes.

There are two possible dates for this workshop, and clubs can register their preference here. The workshop will take place on the date preferred by the majority of respondents. Ideally, the person who attends the workshop should be the person who will administer the grant.

James is also on-hand to offer help and advice through james@iaba.ie
