Leadership opportunites for children and young people

Training and support for young people interested in coaching and sports leadership in the Vale of Glamorgan

 

A key priority set out in the Vale Sport and Physical Activity Plan is to develop people who have the knowledge and motivation to deliver fun, quality opportunities.  To help us achieve this, we have developed and implemented a number of programmes to support young leaders to inspire, motivate and deliver oppotunities to other children and young people.
