National governing body (NGB)
To be eligible for a SportsAid nomination, wheelchair rugby players must have been selected onto Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby's talent development squad. Players must also demonstrate a commitment to fully engaging in the talent development programme and to progress from the national to GB elite level. Recommendations are made by the talent development lead coach and the GBWR performance director.
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.
