Interested in a game of rounders?
Want to join a team or perhaps you already have a team and want to join the League?
The League meets each Tuesday evening 6.30 – 8.30 May to July on St Bernard’s sports fields.
There is a small registration fee of £20 and an £18 match fee for first fixture (total of £38 per team).
Sportivate funding is available to support projects that will run activity targeting 11 - 25 year olds who are semi-sporty or not sporty (those who aren't doing any or only doing very small amounts of physical activity). Activity should run for 6-8 weeks, and must lead to a clearly identified exit route so that participants continue to take part after their initial block of activity has finished.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 3rd January 2014.
Projects must be delivered between 1st April 2014 and March 31st 2015
The target for Sportivate in Cumbria is to get 3747 participants 11 - 25 yrs playing sport regularly by the end of the 6 year programme.
Active Cumbria is looking to accept funding grants of up to £75 per person per 6/8 week ‘block’ of activity. A provider can organise as many blocks of activity for different cohorts of the target groups up a maximum of 6 in a six month period.
Active Cumbria is particularly interested in receiving applications for projects that target;
• Women and girls
• People with disabilities
• 18-25 year olds
• Young people in areas of deprivation
• Young people not in education, employment or training (NEETS)

Cumbria’s Police and Crime Commissioner Richard Rhodes has launched a Commissioner’s Community Fund.
The fund is available to neighbourhood or community groups whose activities or projects support the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan.
Charities, voluntary groups and community groups are invited to apply for up to £10,000 to help fund projects that engage in initiatives and interventions to reduce crime and tackle anti-social behaviour.
What better way to tackle anti-social behaviour than offering sport? Make sure Barrow gets our fair share.
