Young volunteers: support the 2017 School Games National Finals

Home » Get Involved

The 2017 School Games National Finals is a multi-sport event for the UK's elite young athletes and will be hosted in Loughborough, from 31 August to 3 September.

Effectively a youth Olympic Games, the three-day championships provide competitors with an experience of elite competition featuring opening and closing ceremonies, accreditation, team kit and an athlete lounge area.

Over 1,600 young people competed at last year’s event, which was supported by more than 500 volunteers. We are once again offering an amazing opportunity to all those on the Cycling Award for Young Volunteers Programme to get involved.

To provide an expert support network at this year’s event, we are looking for a group of enthusiastic young volunteers to take on the role of Team Attaché for each of the regional cycling teams taking part.

Volunteers will receive training in preparation for their role, with safeguarding, event and sport-specific training delivered by British Cycling to ensure you can fulfil your role and be an ambassador for the sport.

Getting involved means that you’ll take part in opportunities such as team meetings, training and competition sessions and the opening and closing ceremony, as well as working behind the scenes on everything from administrative tasks to sorting out competition kit. The role of Team Attaché is a varied one and each young volunteer’s experience is different, yet always positive and worthwhile.
