National governing body (NGB)
British Wheelchair Basketball nominates junior squad members for SportsAid's support. They are generally aged between 11-years-old and 23-years-old and are aiming for a place in the GB team at the Junior Under-22s European Championships or the Junior Under-23s World Championships the following year.
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.
