Elite Athlete Support Programme

The Elite Athlete Support Programme identifies the highest performing athletes within the club and aims to facilitate their ongoing development and performance. The programme aims to aid developing junior athletes who are showing potential to become elite level senior athletes and also to support established senior athletes.

The financial support provided will generally be exclusively available for the reasons of travel to competitions. Other non-monetary elements are in place to positively influence other facets of the athletes’ ongoing development and success.

The athletes who have been chosen for the programme are listed here and can be downloaded below:

There have been some subtle changes from 2017:

The name of the programme has been subtly altered to reflect the philosophy of supporting the members of the programme in their quest for improvement. There will be also added financial investment in the programme in 2018 to reflect an improvement in the club’s finances. This means that slightly more athletes appear on the upper levels of the programme and there are increases to the funding ceilings across all the levels including the previously non-monetary level. The Commonwealth Games athletes are all receiving significant funding from the Guernsey Commonwealth Games Association up until the Games in April – therefore they will only be permitted to claim half of their annual allowance of club funding. Tied into this change is the method of athlete selection for each level of support. The nationally recognised AAA Standards will dictate which funding level the athletes appear on with a secondary consideration of the IAAF performance tables being considered particularly for senior athletes. This has been implemented so that all athletes can be informed of what standard they need to reach in order to be rewarded with the relevant level of support.

The AAA Standards Scheme is available via the England Athletics website and also downloadable below.
