Membership of Oswestry Sports Council
Membership of Oswestry Sports Council is open to all organisations in the Oswestry area provided that they support and promote the objects of the Sports Council. The Membership subscription fee is £10 per year, payable on 1 September. Membership entitles the organisation to attend meetings of the Sports Council (e.g. Forum Evenings, the annual Sports Awards presentation evening and the AGM). Each member club has one vote at the AGM. Members who provide an email contact address will also receive updates concerning sport in the area, funding for clubs, coaching opportunities etc. Member clubs are also eligible to apply for grants on the small grants scheme (see Grant Conditions).
To apply for membership, please complete the Membership Form and return it to the Secretary.
We also host annual Sports Awards to recognise local sporting performance and club volunteers. We arrange Forum meetings on topics of interest to local sports men and women. During the Oswestry Games 2012, we created a Hall of Fame for local sports stars, past and present, which is on permanent display in Oswestry Leisure Centre.
Five applications for Sports Council Grants were received for the Grants Meeting on 4th October 2013. The committee approved Grants to Shropshire Paddlesport towards the purchase of new multi-purpose kayaks and to Oswestry Otters to contribute towards the training camp in Cyprus next October. The closing date for receipt of applications for the next Grants round is 20th January 2014. Click on the Grants tab for how to apply.
