National governing body (NGB)
England Netball nominates players from the England Under-17s/Under-19s squads at the Netball Europe level who are seen to be strong contenders for selection for the World Youth Under-21s Championships. These players must be a member of the National Academy or INTC programmes. Where the number of SportsAid awards available is less than the number of players nominated, the nominations will be prioritised by the National Academy head coach and Under-21s development coach according to ability.
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.
