Future Sports Leaders
The Future Sports Leaders is a project developed by the Youth Sport Trust in conjunction with Sporting Equals whereby they are providing development opportunities for young leaders in sport from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities. 80 young people aged 15-18 will be provided with the opportunity to attend a unique conference taking place in February.
Applications will remain open until the 30th December. We are hopeful that this will appeal to some of our young people in aquatics.
