• Strength and conditioning
• Physiotherapy

TASS are looking to give small grants of £1,000 (perhaps slightly more for exceptional submissions) for up to three successful research projects.

It should explain your project idea, including any justification for the work, a proposed methodology and a breakdown of how you plan to use the bursary (e.g., time, resource). Please also make clear how the project will support the progression of talented athletes within the TASS system, and how your ideas can be translated into action.
