The British Elite Athletes Association is the independent representative body for elite British athletes. We support, represent and empower Great Britain’s elite athletes, and are here to ensure no one has to face a challenge alone. We provide independent and confidential guidance; ensure the athlete voice is collated, heard, and voiced in decision-making; and equip athletes with the skills and confidence to thrive in all aspects of life. We also work in collaboration with National Governing Bodies to support the world class programme by running athlete led workshops, review selection policies, act as independent observers at selection meetings and regularly visit high performance centres and training camps to build relation shops with athletes.

Athlete Medical Scheme
Information on medical insurance

AMS is a medical insurance scheme which covers the costs of healthcare for funded athletes who are members of Olympic and Paralympic sports’ World Class Programmes.

National Governing Bodies, funded or unfunded, may also purchase places on the AMS at a cost agreed by UK Sport to provide medical cover to athletes not on a World Class Programme.

The mission of the AMS is to drive an efficient and effective medical scheme to develop athlete health and wellbeing. UK Sport pays an annual premium to cover the costs of claims and, subject to approval and conditions of cover, the athlete receives healthcare. It is a free service to athletes and no costs are recharged to their governing bodies.

When your funding comes to an end you are covered for 3 months for existing concerns as part of your transition support.
