Sport Equity Funds

The sports department is very excited about these funds and have two mechanisms to help capture as many students who may require financial support.

We have implemented both external and internal mechanisms to help capture as many students in the hope that all students who wish to be involved in sport are supported appropriately.

 

Apollo Projects Sports Grant

 

Apollo Projects to support students to be able to participate in sport at all levels.

The funding goes to students who would otherwise miss out. There is a demonstrable need (e.g., disadvantaged circumstances) or financial barrier to participation in sport meaning the student might not participate.
The individual shows positive interest, ability or potential in their sport.
Funding would assist in potentially providing a better long-term outcome for that student in sport and life.
Funding would be expected to cover direct payment of sports fees, sporting equipment, support services, travel to events etc.

How to apply for this grant.
Students would apply for the Apollo Projects Sports Grant via an online form which would be reviewed and approved by the Director of Sport and Sport Coordinator. A monthly report will be shown to the Principal.

A limit of $500 per student per annum is to be applied (we are open to bigger grants, however, grants over $500 would be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by Apollo Projects).

Tauranga Girls' College Sports Equity Fund

 

Established by the Board of Trustees to address equity in sport, the Sports Equity Fund has a vision to see more students being able to participate in sport where previously they may not have due to financial constraints.

This links well with our College’s mission statement: ‘To create a safe, stimulating and exciting learning environment that allows each student to develop her academic, cultural and sporting potential.’

As well as the TGC Sports Vision: Thrive Grow Connect Succeed
Empowering wahine toa to thrive, grow, connect and succeed through sport and recreation.

The Sport Equity Budget aims to reduce the financial barrier of playing a sport and endeavours to cover some of the costs associated with your team/code. The amount of support will depend on the demand over summer and then winter codes/teams.
