The LTA prioritises those players selected as a member of the U12 National Age Group Programme (NAGP) squad. If after this spaces allow consideration will be given to those players who were either:

- shortlisted but not selected for NAGP; or 
- selected for GB representation in 2019 (U12, U14, U16 Winter Cup or Summer Cup (inc. Junior Davis/Fed Cup), U14, U16 European Individual Championships)  

Those players who receive LTA Player funding or attend a National Academy will not be eligible to be nominated. 

If there are more players than spaces based on the above then the discretion and professional judgement of the National coaches and National Pathway Team will determine those nominated.

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.
