Nomination criteria

National governing body (NGB): British Athletics

NGB contact: Mary Edwards

British Athletics nominates, as a priority, athletes from the under-23, under-20 and under-17 age groups who are not already funded through the UKA Futures or WCPP Development or Podium programmes. The U23 and U20 nominees should be the top two unfunded athletes in the UK in their age group. The U17 nominees should be the top unfunded athletes in the UK.

The nomination process

SportsAid only supports unfunded athletes who are nominated by their sport's national governing body. This ensures the right athletes get the right help at the right time - enhancing the sports' talent development programmes rather than duplicating them. Nominations take place every autumn. You should contact your sport about whether you meet the criteria for the next round of SportsAid awards. Meeting the nomination criteria does not necessarily guarantee a SportsAid award because the charity can only distribute what it has fundraised.
