National governing body (NGB)
British Shooting nominates Team England national squad members or members of the England TENS Academy who have attained a SportsAid Minimum Consideration Score at an England or Great Britain selection match. Only shooters competing in Commonwealth and Olympic disciplines will be considered. SportsAid nominations form the initial stage in the development of young English shooters. The nominations are designed to give tangible and immediate support to young athletes on the first rung of the performance ladder. They are targeted towards young shooters aged between 14-years-old and 19-years-old with a history of representing England at a junior age-group level.
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.
