Aged 14 – 17? ASA Young Volunteers Program


N.B. CSW club members only may apply.  The Birmingham club programme will be announced later.

2015/16 The Warwickshire Young Volunteers Programme is open to any ASA club member aged 14 – 17 years on day of course. The project will give you the skills, experience and qualification to help volunteer at your club. Volunteering is a really great way of giving something back to your club, but it also gives you valuable life skills in preparation for adulthood.

This year’s courses will include:

Safeguarding (13+) – This workshop provides young coaches, officials, volunteers and sports leaders with age-appropriate safeguarding information. It’s the ideal environment for you to develop your confidence in how to identify what abuse of a child in sport may look like, how you should take action appropriate to your age and status, and how to keep yourself safe in sport.

Timekeeper Course – This is an introduction into the world of the swimming official. It covers the practical aspects of what is required of a timekeeper by means of a short theory session followed by a practical assessment.

Aquatic Helper Course – This course is designed for people who wish to actively assist on poolside in any aquatic environment e.g. clubs or learn to swim schemes.

You will also be invited to attend a Celebration Event at the end of the programme (May/June 2016 – date and venue TBC).
