National governing body (NGB)
British Triathlon nominates Gold+, Gold, Silver and (some) Bronze standard junior and youth triathletes to SportsAid - as well as late maturation athletes at university age. Triathletes must be in the British Triathlon Pathway (i.e. involved with their regional academy as a minimum) and must have shown a commitment to triathlon racing.
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.
