Club Development Fund

Club Development Fund

Every year the BDA Executive Committee holds a reserve of money that BDA registered clubs can apply for to help them develop. This is known as the BDA Club Development Fund.

The BDA Club Development Fund can be applied for from a nominated officer (typically a Club committee member) if the application demonstrates that the fund will be used to help develop the club, the BDA or dragon boating in general.
