Who are we?

🏉⚽️🏑 Embarking on Excellence Together! 🏑⚽️🏉

Get to know the dynamic trio behind this project: Clwb Pêl-droed Crymych (Football), Clwb Rygbi Crymych (Rugby), and Clwb Hoci Emlyn (Hockey). Our clubs, each with a rich history and a deep passion for sports, have come together to enhance our local all-weather facility. 

1) Clwb Rygbi Crymych stands strong with a vibrant junior section for boys and girls, 2 men's senior teams, and a 'walking rugby' team catering to various abilities, ensuring everyone finds their place on the field. 🏉 With 270 junior and senior members, we foster rugby talent and camaraderie, making a lasting impact on Crymych's sporting landscape.

2) Clwb Pêl-droed Crymych fuels the football fever, boasting 2 senior teams and launching a girls/ladies team, promoting gender equality in sports. 🌟 With 60 junior and senior members, we nurture football talent and community spirit, creating a vibrant sporting culture in Crymych. 

3) Clwb Hoci Emlyn is making waves with a thriving ladies seniors team and a groundbreaking launch of the first-ever men's team in Sept 2024, breaking traditional barriers in hockey. Our junior section, flourishing with 85+ participants aged 6-18, proudly includes both boys and girls and currently includes more than 15 county players!

Together, we are more than clubs; we are a community committed to providing opportunities, breaking down barriers, and fostering a love for sports in every corner of Crymych! 🌈


Why are we crowdfunding?

🌟 Answer: For a Brighter Community Sports Hub! 🌟

Our collective endeavor aims to elevate our shared all-weather facility for the entire community. 


1. Weather Protection: Currently, adverse weather conditions leave players, coaches, and supporters with soaked belongings. Dugouts provide essential shelter during training sessions and matches, ensuring they can stay dry and comfortable ...even in Crymych!

2. Player Welfare: With growing participation across all age groups and genders, our club needs proper facilities to support our players' development and well-being. Dugouts offer a dedicated space for rest, hydration, and injury management during games.

3. Attracting Talent and Multi-Sport Opportunities: Investing in infrastructure like dugouts demonstrates our commitment to providing a top-quality sporting environment. This can attract new players, volunteers, and sponsors, ensuring the long-term success and sustainability of our clubs. Our strong links across clubs allow children to engage in multi-sports, contributing to their holistic development.

4. Community Hub: Shelter means more than dry kit; it symbolises our commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive sports environment for all. Dugouts would enhance the overall experience for all users, fostering a sense of community and camaraderie. Each club actively addresses issues of gender inequalities and increases sports participation. All 3 clubs welcome both boys and girls, and Clwb Rygbi Crymych has pioneered 'walking rugby' for those less physically able, promoting inclusivity and diversity. Our goal is to provide access to quality sports facilities for all, fostering a sense of community and breaking barriers.

By supporting our project, you contribute to a thriving community hub that transcends sports, uniting Crymych in the pursuit of healthier, happier lives for all. Join us on this journey to transform our shared space! 🌈🏉⚽️🏑

How we’ll spend the money raised

Your generous contributions will be instrumental in acquiring two 6-seater dugouts for our shared facility. Each dugout costs approximately £2920, totalling £5840. Additionally, there's a need for anchor weights (4 x £40 = £160) essential delivery cost of £400, bringing the overall expense to approximately £6400.

Breakdown of Expenditure:

  • Dugouts (2 x 6-seater): £5840
  • Weights x 4: £160
  • Delivery Cost: £400
  • Total Project Cost: £6400


Great news! The online store selling the dugouts we need is currently offering a 15% discount. With this offer, the revised cost for two 6-seater dugouts would be approximately £5443.93. Your support will help us seize this opportunity and get closer to our fundraising target. 

Your contribution plays a crucial role in transforming our shared sports space into a hub that fosters inclusivity and a sense of community. Together, let's make this project a reality! 🌟⚽️🏉

Community Impact

Empowering Our Community Beyond Sports: A Wider Impact

Clwb Pêl-droed Crymych, Clwb Rygbi Crymych, and Clwb Hoci Emlyn extend far beyond the realm of sports, making a profound impact on our entire community.

1. Diverse Participation: Our clubs actively encourage inclusive participation, bringing together individuals from different backgrounds, ages, and abilities. Whether on the field or as spectators, everyone is welcome.

2. Gender Equality Initiatives: From launching girls/ladies football teams to introducing walking rugby, we strive for gender equality in sports, providing opportunities for everyone to engage in physical activity. Clwb Hoci Emlyn is also leading the charge in breaking down traditional barriers. By introducing mixed hockey for juniors and aiming to start a Men's Team in September 2024, we're challenging norms and creating opportunities for everyone to participate in the sport they love.

3. Multisport Opportunities: Strong inter-club connections enable children to experience various sports, promoting a holistic approach to physical well-being and development from an early age.

4. Inclusive Facilities: Beyond sports, our facilities serve as a communal space, fostering social connections and a sense of belonging. The proposed dugouts will enhance the overall experience, making it more comfortable for players, coaches, and supporters.

5. Local Economic Boost: A thriving sports community attracts new players, spectators, and events, potentially boosting local businesses and the overall economy.

6. Social Hub: Our shared facility is not just a sports venue; it's a social hub where friendships are forged, and community bonds strengthened. The proposed improvements will contribute to a more welcoming and enjoyable space for everyone.

By supporting our project, you contribute to a vibrant community hub that goes beyond sports—a place where people connect, thrive, and share in the joy of a healthier, happier life. Join us in creating a lasting impact for Crymych! 🌟⚽️🏉🏑
