Young Ambassadors Scheme

Sport RCT has more than 100 active Young Ambassadors working in schools and communities. Young Ambassadors are role models and leaders in sport working to promote healthy lifestyles and participation in sport.

What is the Young Ambassador Programme?


The Young Ambassador programme aims to empower and inspire young people to become leaders through sport, helping to encourage their inactive peers to become hooked on sport. The programme aims to recruit, train, deploy and celebrate the outstanding individuals who volunteer their time in sport.

The expectation of every Young Ambassador is to:

  • Be the young person's voice for PE and School Sport in their school and community
  • Promote the positive values of sport
  • Be a role model and champion for PE and school sport
  • Increase participation opportunities and healthy lifestyles to help get every child hooked on sport for life
