TJs Academy is a highly professional set up and requires significant financial support from its members, sponsors and supporters.
We are extremely grateful to our sponsors and partners for their continued financial support to our set up. Without them TJs Academy could not provide the outstanding opportunities to U16-18 boys in our community that it currently achieves.
Whilst TJs Academy is lucky to be supported by a range of generous sponsors and supporters we strongly encourage members to contribute to essential fund raising efforts. Without this work TJs Academy would not be able to offer such an outstanding experience. Club subscriptions go towards covering main club overheads and do not go into the Academy pot for things such as kit, equipment, facilities hire and physio cover. It is essential and right that Academy members commit to raising funds.
There are several ways to do this:
- Make a donation if you can.
- Ask a company you know or work for to sponsor TJs Academy. Several of our sponsors are companies owned or
- worked in by Academy players and their parents.
- Help at the annual Heathfield show in May which can raise hundreds of pounds for the Academy and get free entry to the show!
- Be a wine waiter at the annual Sportsmans’ Dinner in July. This is great fun, involves giving up one evening of your time and has raised almost £2000 for the Academy over the last two years.
- Help man the gates at the annual Edenbridge and Oxted Agricultural show on the Bank Holiday weekend, Sunday 28th or Monday 29th August. This raises £1500 for the Academy but only if we have 20 people there each day. Give up one morning of your time to help make a huge difference to your club.
- Row in the Academy boat ‘Perfect Storm’ at the Bewl Water Dragon Boat Racing Festival on Saturday 10th September. Sponsorship forms are available from age group admins. We are also running a bottle tombola on the day so why not donate a bottle? Parents are welcome to row as well as players and ALL players should be raising sponsorship money.
