National governing body (NGB)
British Waterski & Wakeboard nominates British team members to SportsAid who are competing at the age-group level. SportsAid's support is available across the five competitive disciplines of the sport: tournament, boat and cable wakeboard, racing and barefoot. Skiers and riders that meet the criteria are nominated through the discipline committees from their squads and are typically already on the British Team for their age category.
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.
