Scottish Swimming are delighted to announce the re-launch of the Young Ambassador Programme after the success of the programme in 2019. The programme gives our young members a range of opportunities to support and shape our sport. Below is what our previous young ambassadors had to say about the programme:
“I found it very beneficial for myself in gaining the confidence to speak in front of many people also I had a lot of fun figuring out what we could do to help.”
“Fantastic, fascinating, FUN “
“I learned that I like to help people and to make changes and that it is very rewarding to see your ideas implemented and have people enjoy them “
“I took away that Scottish Swimming does want to hear a range of views.”
This is a great opportunity for 5 young people aged 16-25 to represent each district in a 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! As a team they will help formulate young people priorities and come up with suggestions to present to the top people in Scottish Swimming and the districts. As a group they will work together to promote their message and influence positive change for young people in swimming.
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 23rd of August so please can we ask that you apply quickly!
