How to Apply

To apply please use the online application form which can be accessed using the yellow application form button on the right of this page. 

Applications are assessed twice a year with closing dates of 31st October and 30th April each year.

All Applications will be assessed by the S4S Awards Panel and all applicants will be notified in writing of the outcome.

The number of awards given by the awards panel will depend on the number of applications received, their eligibility for an award and the finances available to the panel at the time. The panel requests information from the referees given in the application and makes it's judgements based on the information on the application form and that given by the referees. The panel works within financial constraints and aims to select the most deserving of the applicants based on achievements to date and future potential, taking into account the age of the applicant and the sport. The panel will not enter into any discussions regarding the decisions made to award or not to award individuals.

Top Tips for Applications
