SWINDON Storm have been given a boost after being handed a grant by Swindon Borough Council’s Sports Forum.
The club are gold standard members of the scheme which rewards professionalism amongst the town’s volunteer-led sports clubs, which has now led to a grant of £1,127.
Storm have been handed a number of similar grants over the last five years, which have been used to grow the club significantly to now include a variety of teams operating at different age groups.
The new grant will go towards accrediting a new generation of coaches, with the money helping Storm train 15 new coaches.
The club are also now offering free taster sessions, starting this weekend, from 10.30am at Swindon Rugby Club on Greenbridge Road.
All players can try flag, non-contract or full contact football, with all equipment supplied and no prior experience necessary.
Storm are always looking for new volunteers, with anyone interested in getting involved invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
