National governing body (NGB)
NGB contact: Sophie Lewis
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.
Triathletes nominated to SportsAid have to be at Bronze level as a minimum, but due to the restricted number of places, they are more likely to be at Silver level. Priority will be given to members of the National Talent Squad, then Regional Talent Squad athletes. British Triathlon will be seeking advice for athletes nominated at Bronze level to assess potential and commitment. British Triathlon will also consider athletes who have ranked highly in the British Triathlon elite youth and junior race series.
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.
