Financial Support Policy

Club Logo - Black

Inverness Harriers Amateur Athletic Club (IHAAC) is committed to supporting the athletic development of all its members in an inclusive manner which embraces the broad spectrum of our membership, covering those whose goals relate to the social and fitness aspects of membership, through to those who aspire to competitive success at a national and international level. In promoting that commitment, it is important that the club’s finances are used to support that broad membership, whilst recognising the increased financial commitments that come with competitive success.

Please note that all applications for funding to attend British Championships or England Championships (AAA) must be applied for in advance, as all applications must go before committee, then be forwarded to the Inverness Area or Ross-shire Sports Council.  If any athlete does not fall into these catchments the request is to Inverness Harriers directly.

No applications will be considered retrospectively.

All applications must be completed on Inverness Area or Ross & Cromarty Sports Council application forms. Links to Webpages and application forms here:

Inverness Area Sports Council         Inverness ASC – Grant Form

Ross & Cromarty Sports Council      Ross & Cromarty ASC – Grant Form


These should be passed to Funding Secretary prior to the event to be taken to the Harriers committee (which meets on the first Monday of each month) and will then forwarded onto the relevant Sports Council.

When applying for funding you must declare any other funding you are receiving from other funding trusts such as Scottish/British Athletics or other Athletic Clubs you have a membership with.

If funding is granted the athlete must keep all receipts for food, accommodation and transport and forward these to Funding Secretary on return.

You must be a first claim member of the club, and your membership must be paid by 31/10 of the year due, and should have no outstanding fees/payments to the club.

PLEASE REMEMBER it is imperative that requests are put in well in advance of the event you wish to attend, and after full discussion and agreement with your coach.  The decision on eligibility for funding is made by the committee whose decision is final. 


Athletes can also apply for funding from the Duncraig Educational Trust Scheme - check out the website for criteria information and application forms.
