Élite Cymru

Élite Cymru

Élite Cymru is a lottery funded programme which is aimed at providing both élite and potentially élite athletes from non-Olympic sports with a wide range of support in order to assist them to fully develop their potential.

Élite Cymru members are provided with:

  • Financial support
  • Medical support
  • Sports Science support
  • Strength and Conditioning support
  • Performance Lifestyle
  • Coaching

It is an achievement in itself to be included as a member of the Sports Council for Wales Élite Cymru scheme. The performance standards are extremely high in order to meet the criteria for support. To receive continued support on the scheme Élite Cymru members must be able to prove to the Sports Council for Wales and their governing body that they are continuing to make progress. It is the view of the Sports Council for Wales that taking advantage of the support services on offer will give Élite Cymru members the best possible chance of achieving their goals and help to make the 1% difference that could bring success.
