Please see below details of the 2022-23  Swim England South West Region Young Volunteer Programme.

The aim of this year’s programme is to retain and offer opportunities to   athletes who may be thinking of giving up their training, as well as offering opportunities to those whose training sessions may have been reduced due to lack of pool time available to them during unprecedented times.

The Programme will run from October 2022 until the end of July 2023

  • Aimed at 15 -18-year-old volunteers from clubs and open to all disciplines.

With 25 hours of volunteering to be completed by end of July 2023 (hours attending workshops working on projects can be counted towards their volunteering hours)
