National governing body (NGB)
British Rowing nominate athletes for SportsAid who show the potential to represent Great Britain at the Coupe de la Jeunesse (European Championships) or the Junior World Championships at the end of the season. Junior rowers will be given priority. Occasionally, Under-20s rowers may be considered so long as they are still in education and on no other funding (TASS or World Class).
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.
