National Governing Body (NGB)

Basketball England

Basketball England targets SportsAid's support towards the top players for the Under-16s and Under-18s national teams (male and female). Priority will be given to the top 12 athletes. GB Under-20s players may also be considered if financial pressures are a barrier to their progression.

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.
