Young Volunteer Programme

Scottish Swimming are delighted to announce the launch of the new Young Volunteer Programme which gives our young members a range of opportunities to support and shape our sport.

This year we have several programmes that young people can sign up to but with limited spaces, could we ask that you forward on the information to all of your young members over the age of 13.

The Programmes available are:

The Young SS Ambassador Programme

This is a great opportunity for 5 young people aged 16-25 to represent the Midland in a new national forum.  These 5 young people will join 15 others from around the country to help give a voice to the young people in our sport. This is a free programme where they will get to attend an amazing residential weekend!

This is a great opportunity to shape the future of our sport and to develop our young people to give them transferable skills for the future.

This Programme is free and has a closing date of 3rd of November 2019 so please can we ask that you push this quickly!

Young Leader Squad 

Following on from the success of the last 3 programmes ran in the West District, candidates will look into why participants drop out of aquatics and help empower and motivate the young people themselves to actively help engage their peers and improve retention rates in their own home clubs.

The Programme will target two young captains/ leaders aged 13-17 (1 boy and 1 girl) from each club within the Midland District. Each of these captains/ leaders will attend a 2 night residential training camp facilitated by Education Through Cashback, SASA Midland District and Scottish Swimming Staff.

This Programme will cost each individual £150 the date hasn’t been confirmed yet however you can register your interest online and will be notified when the booking becomes available.
