National Governing Body (NGB)

British Mountaineering Council

The British Mountaineering Council nominates climbers to SportsAid in both lead-climbing and bouldering disciplines who have typically represented Great Britain at the European Youth Cups and World Youth Championships. The award is for climbers in Junior, Youth A and Youth B categories. 


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.
