The Katharine Merry Award is for the best female Championship performance by a junior athlete (18-19 years old on 31 December in the year of competition) in the eyes of the BASC Committee. The male equivalent is the Ron Jewkes Trophy.
The BASC Young Athlete of the Year Award is made for performances over the course of a season by a youth athlete (16-17 years old on 31 December in the year of competition). Winners of the award are selected by the BASC Committee.
Throughout the year, BASC also makes a number of Rising Star Awards to athletes who are not on funding and who have made a special performance at major championships. Special performances include personal bests or qualifying for the final at that championship. Awards are made by the BASC Committee, and winners also receive a cheque for £250
