Elite Cymru

Elite Cymru helps support athletes who are competing successfully on the world stage in individual, non-Olympic/Paralympic sports.

Elite Cymru can support talented athletes, who are on a trajectory to being selected onto a UK Sport funded World Class programme within a two year period, in a sport where the National Governing Body does not receive a national lottery funded performance award from Sport Wales.

Minimum consideration criteria will be agreed with the relevant national governing body prior to Elite Cymru funding being available.
