SWF Bursaries

SWF Qualifications Bursary

We are really pleased to be able to initiate this bursary programme for SWF full member clubs to support the development of competitive play in the region.

  • Bursaries will be available to defray the costs of attending CA qualification courses for coaches and referees.
  • Bursaries may also be available to defray the costs of developing handicapping and tournament management skills.

The aims of programme are

  • To increase the number of qualified coaches and referees in the SWF region
  • To improve and standardise the quality of handicapping in the SWF region
  • To increase the number of tournament managers in the SWF region

Amount of payment available

  • Successful applications will be re-imbursed at the rate of 20p per mile
  • This will be paid for one car only per course


  • Applications must be submitted and supported by the individual member’s club
  • The club must be a full member of the SWF
  • The course must take place within the SWF region

What we ask in return

  • We will encourage anyone who receives the bursary to use their skills within the SWF region rather than just within their club


  • Applications should be sent to the SWF secretary and contain the following information
    • Contact details for the supporting club
    • Contact details for the member
    • Details of the course to be attended
    • Statement of how the club and member will benefit from the course – how the skills learnt will be used
    • Statement of how the wider SWF region might benefit from this
  • The committee will make a decision – this should take no more than one week as it will normally be made by email discussion – and inform the club
  • Payment will normally be made on successful attainment of the qualification – this may not be the same as the date of the course
  • Where there is no qualification e.g. handicapping, payment will be made on receipt of a statement from the club that the course / event has been attended and that the member is using their skills within the club
