Young sports volunteers across Wales are the next generation of sporting champions and make a huge contribution to school and community sport through advocacy, delivery and taking on a variety of volunteering, coaching and leadership roles.
And, like our adult volunteers, all young sports volunteers are supported by the three ‘Give to Gain’ principles:
• Volunteers know exactly what is expected of them
• Volunteers are valued, developed and supported
• The mutual benefits of volunteering are clear to everyone
