Monday, August 30, 2010, 12:56

In its strive to instigate a sport culture, the Kunsill Malti għall-iSport (KMS) endeavours to develop and implement sport programmes targeting all members of the Maltese community. KMS as both regulator and provider of services in the Sport and Active Leisure sector is also committed to supporting local sports from grassroots to the highest level of sport. This is achieved in a number of ways through investing in the provision of a number of support programmes, which offer finanical subsidies and/or provision of facilities to KMS registered sports associations, federations and clubs.

With the launch of a new funding scheme, the KMS is widening and investing further in local sport, open to non olympic sport entities registered with the KMS. A total of 17 sport disciplines will benefit from this scheme which has an initial allocation of €28,250 for the period 2010. This scheme will provide grants for training and technical preparations for competitions or international competitions including partially assisting in the expenses involved for travelling and/or participating and/ or training camps abroad. This means that through this scheme KMS is creating further opportunities at national level for non olympic sports athletes to grow and sustain their participation.

KMS offers a number of schemes these of which include:

* Venue Scheme,
* Use of School Sport Facilities Scheme,
* Facility Maintenance Scheme,
* Facility Improvement Scheme,
* Special Sports Leave Scheme,
