  • The QFG Bursary is currently available to cover up to 70% of course registration fees for the Competition Introduction (CI) training (required by U12A, and U14- U19 Regional, Provincial and AA level head coaches and assistant coaches), and the Competition Introduction evaluation/certification (an additional requirement of AA-level head coaches and assistant coaches).
