Who can apply?

Applications are restricted to sportsmen and women willing and able to represent Wales in non-Olympic sports. The Sports Council for Wales has agreed minimum standards of performance with the majority of governing bodies in non-Olympic sports in Wales and applicants must clearly meet these standards before they can be considered for an Élite Cymru award. Contact should be made via the governing body, or the High Performance Unit, in order to find out what the minimum performance standards are for a particular sport.

Golf - for golfers updated guidelines are available here on Élite Cymru support for professional golfers.

Applications for Élite Cymru support are considered only for those non-Olympic sports and activities recognised by the Sports Council for Wales. If you are unsure whether your sport or discipline is recognised, please contact the High Performance Unit.
