To apply, clubs must commit to provide a smoke free environment whilst young people are training or are taking part in fixtures. Club coaches will be given training and resources to implement a smoke free policy that will contribute to creating an environment for young people that complements a healthy lifestyle. Successful applicants will receive a £500 grant to buy extra equipment or provide additional facilities & training at the sports club.
