Sport NI have launched their Athlete Award Programme 2021-22, which aims to enable athletes to train in order to maximise their potential.
The award can be used to help an athlete with their essential personal living costs, with three categories: £1,500, £3,000 and £6,000.
Gymnastics Northern Ireland will apply on behalf of gymnasts from Olympic, and Commonwealth disciplines. Applications from gymnasts/clubs submitted directly to Sport NI will not be considered. In the 2021-22 programme there will be an additional focus on athletes who can deliver medals and top 8 finishes at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Those applying will be required to demonstrate that their circumstances have changed or need to change significantly to allow them to adequately prepare for competition or the national high performance programme.
Deadline for applications to be received by Gymnastics Northern Ireland is Wednesday 17th February 5pm. The nomination form can be downloaded here.
Please note: Gymnastics Northern Ireland will prioritise the athletes in terms of need for investment to enhance performance. This priority will be used by Sport NI in the event that available funds do not meet demands for awards.
