Our Sports Leadership Programmes offer young people the opportunity to gain qualifications and experience.

Sports Leadership Academy 

Our Sports Leadership Academy offers an extensive leadership and volunteering programme for pupils in S3 and above. This programme takes place throughout one week of the school calendar allowing pupils to participate in courses such as child protection, NGB Level 1 courses that are sport specific, team building as well as developing intra-personal skills. Pupils are asked to use what they have learnt and give back to their school or community setting by volunteering 10 hours, which also provides more practical experiences to learn from.
