Young Ambassadors

Our young ambassador programme helps to develop young leaders and encourage people to take part in sport. They are selected due to their sporting talent, showing commitment or skills as young leaders or volunteers in sport. 

Young Ambassador's roles

A young ambassador helps to:

  • Encourage healthy lifestyles.

  • Encourage participation in PE, school and community sport.
  • Review and suggest improvements to PE and sports in their schools and communities.
  • Highlight national events to increase knowledge of sports and athletes. 
  • Link students with teachers, 5x60 officers and community clubs/coaches.
