Support for talented athletes

We aim to encourage excellence by supporting talented athletes to fulfil their potential. We work to increase participation, develop sports performance and assist Welsh governing bodies of sport to ensure that opportunities are provided for competition and training.

Athlete Support Grants

Small grants are available to Powys based athletes performing at a national age group level or ranked in the top 20 in Wales, via the Montgomeryshire District Sports Council and the Brecknock & Radnor Sports Partnership. 

Both schemes aim to help athletes fulfil their potential by providing help towards the costs of training, competing and equipment.
