SUPPORTING YOUNG ATHLETES IN THE COTSWOLDS
CASS & Friends was set up in early 2015 to offer financial support to young and aspiring athletes in the Cotswolds. Training, attending events, buying equipment and obtaining specialist advice can be very expensive, and there is little support available to help with the costs.
Funded totally from public donations, we seek to provide assistance to ease the financial burden on families with gifted youngsters. This grass-roots lead organisation achieved charity status in September 2017.
The problem is that in our local area, and indeed throughout the UK, when financially limited parents hit a stage where their children are so good at a particular sport and they start competing all over the country (and beyond) if they are going to reach their full potential, the costs become prohibitive in some cases. This happens all without the back up of prize money and so the parents have to pay for experience, via coaching and new and up to date equipment is always a necessity. CASS & Friends identifies such children and provides the necessary financial support for coaching and equipment to help them succeed.
What we have seen by supporting these athletes is increased confidence and well-being and a belief that they can achieve their sporting goals and ultimately pursue a career in sport.
