AESP Tier 2: TASS 2021/22 Selection

The Army Elite Sport Programme has great pleasure in announcing the personnel selected for the Talented Athlete Support Programme for 2021/22.
In total 49 athletes were selected for TASS placements starting in September 2021; the list of successful individuals is below. Unsuccessful candidates were automatically considered for Sports Scholarship Awards (either BAE Scholarships or Army Sports Scholarship Scheme awards) results to follow.
There is a mandatory Briefing/Induction Day for all Army TASS athletes; units with TASS athletes are encouraged to send a unit rep. This year it will be held in Aldershot at the Army School of Physical Training on Tuesday 28th September 2021. Further details will be distributed. As the TASS delivery model is currently being reviewed with some potential changes from the previous delivery programme it is strongly recommended that a unit representative attends this Briefing Day. If COVID-19 restrictions remain in place, then the athlete Briefing/Induction day will be conducted remotely with all successful athletes in order to comply with COVID restrictions. If this is the case, units with athletes selected for TASS will receive a pack containing all relevant information covered at the Briefing to enable support to their athletes.
