National governing body (NGB)
NGB contact: Rachel Russell
British Gymnastics nominates its top age-group gymnasts to SportsAid who compete in Olympic disciplines. Gymnasts cannot be in receipt of direct Lottery funding. In addition to this allocation, British Gymnastics will have a very limited number of nominations at their disposal to target key gymnasts of a relevant British standard competing in non-Olympic disciplines as discretionary nominations. In all cases nominations will be in agreement with SportsAid.
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.
