In the 2015 National Lottery Awards, TASS was named as a finalist in the UK’s Best Sport Project category. The scheme garnered support from some of its most notable alumni, however the award was ultimately won by veterans’ charity Erskine Care Home.
TASS joined forces with the Army Elite Sport Programme (AESP) in 2015, with the aim to discover and support new talent in the British Army. Former TASS athlete and Olympic Rowing Champion Major Heather Stanning supported the launch at the British Army’s Aldershot Hub. More than 100 athletes have benefitted from the partnership to date, including shooter Sergeant Sam Gowin who won a bronze medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
