National Governing Body (NGB)
Boccia England nominates England squad members or those who are very close to it. To be eligible for a SportsAid nomination, the players must exhibit the attitude, commitment and behaviours necessary to progress at the national level, together with competition results that reflect a transition from national to GB level. Recommendations will be accepted from nominated home country coaches or academy contacts along with the appointed performance staff in Boccia England.
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.
