National governing body (NGB)
Aspiring male golfers are nominated to SportsAid from the England Under-18s men's and boys' squads with selected players from England Golf's Under-16s boys' regional programme also considered. Aspiring female golfers are nominated to SportsAid from the England Under-18s women's and girl’s squads with higher performing players at the regional Under-18s or Under-16s levels also considered. These are the very best amateur players in the country.
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.
