Youth Advisory Panel

Introduction to the YAP (Youth Advisory Panel)

YAP (Youth Advisory Panel) is a panel consisting of young volunteers across a range of aquatic disciplines. It gives our young members a voice, enabling them to speak about issues they may experience in their sport and/or changes they would like to see in the future around the region.

With our members being at the heart of everything we do, it is only right we listen to their suggestions in order to ensure this remains the case. Hearing from our young members will assist with making sure we remain relevant as a region.

The panel would provide a young person’s perspective on current issues facing our aquatic sports. It would encourage panel members to think critically, solve problems and work as a team.

We hope that the panel will inspire more people to get involved in volunteering and also help to maintain our current volunteer base.
