Young Volunteer Programme


Scottish Swimming's Young Volunteer Programme (YVP) is a national strategy designed to engage and develop our young members between the ages of 13-25.

There are 5 programmes within the YVP and each programme will provide skills, knowledge and support to prepare and deploy young members to help build on Scottish Swimming’s incredible volunteer base across all disciplines and areas of work.

The YVP has created the following five programmes to target particular areas of work:

Young Leader Squad to develop Club Captains and improve retention rates

Young Technical Official to recruit more technical officials

Young Events Coordinator to support our events

Young SS Ambassador to create a national voice for the youth members in Scottish Swimming. 

Poolside Helper to develop coaches and helpers within a club environment

Other than the Young SS Ambassador programme that is expected to be piloted in October 2019, each programme has had a successful pilot and is ready to be rolled out in all Districts.
