Sports Leaders
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. 

Find out more here.



If you are a young person interested in volunteering, we will have opportunities for you to gain experience and qualifications.  Please get in touch with your Active Schools Co-ordinator to note your interest.

Young Ambassadors  

Active Schools provides a brilliant opportunity for some real grass roots development experience within school. Each academic year we recruit up to two new sports enthusiasts to join our Young Ambassador team and provide sporting opportunities to the Dundee.
