The Birnie Trust funding for young athletes

Date: 30th June 2010

The Trust supports young athletes (13-18) from a wide variety of sports across Scotland. Preference is given to top junior level athletes competing in minority sports. The following sports are not eligible: football, cricket, rugby, golf, tennis.

Funding is intended to be used to help with additional coaching or to help pay for competition fees and the travel costs associated with travelling to events in locations outside of Scotland.

In particular, the trust aims to help those individuals who have shown potential at either a district or national level of representation and who have been unable to secure adequate additional funding from other sources to compete internationally.
