Our Young Leaders programme is a great introduction into leadership, giving learners in Years 7 to 9 knowledge of how to organise and lead small games and activities.
With the support and guidance from our in-house coaching team, a young leader will develop at their own pace. The course focuses on enhancing their leadership skills as well as helping to build confidence and self-esteem, as they take on responsibility for supporting and leading activities for younger children.
Throughout the week we will focus on health and safety, engagement of children, behavioural techniques, and delivery of sports activities. This is achieved through guidance, observation, feedback, planning and support throughout.
Our Young Leaders are welcome to attend from 8.00am to 6.00pm however the course will run every day from 10.00am until 4.00pm. When your Young Leader isn't enhancing their leadership skills, our coaches will have plenty of fun activities for them to take part in.
At the end of the week a Young Leader will be accredited with their Sport Leaders UK Young Leaders Award.
Please note: Our Young Leaders course is a five day course which is broken up to key elements on different days, all attendees will be supported throughout with our coaching team.
