Club Support

We aim to provide our affiliated dodgeball clubs with plenty of support to help them grow their membership and infrastructure. Here are just a few of the ways we can support your club.

Disclosure & Barring Service Check
As a coach or volunteer at a club you will need to apply for an enhanced DBS check if you are working with children or vulnerable adults. DBS check applicants must be 16 years or over. You can apply for a DBS check through the UKDBA for a cost of £52. Please contact your active clubs coordinator to request an application form.

As a UKDBA affiliated dodgeball club you will come under our public liability insurance. You can obtain a copy of the insurance document from your relevant Active Clubs Coordinator below.

Bid Writing Service
As a fully constituted community dodgeball club that is affiliated to the UKDBA you can apply for numerous funding pots. One of the most relevant of these is Sport England Small Grants where not for profit groups such as sports clubs can apply for grants between £300 and £10,000 to help more people play sport. We understand that writing a funding bid can be a daunting task, that is why we are now offering a no win no fee bid writing service to all our affiliated community dodgeball clubs. If this is of interest to your club contact [email protected]

The Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC) scheme was introduced in 2002 as an option for sports clubs to register with HMRC to receive ‘charity type’ tax reliefs. CASC registration may not be suitable for all clubs and care should be taken when deciding whether or not to register.
