The GtG grant will enable the club to create new Under-7, Under-9 and Under-10 teams. This will in turn assist in feeding players up to the higher age groups as they progress through the club. This money therefore not only increases participation in those age groups but also helps to sustain and grow participation in higher age groups, including post-16.
The Aztecs’ GtG grant will also go towards the recruitment and training of new volunteers to fill coaching and administrative roles. In this way GtG is not simply an exercise in getting more people playing football. It also
strengthens the infrastructure, so that the increased participation is likely to be sustained rather than simply fall away again when the money runs out.
GtG will ensure the expansion of Ashbourne Aztecs by at least two teams per year over the next three years.
