The Scottish Cycling Young People’s Panel is a national group selected to represent the voice of young people, led by Scottish Cycling, the National Governing Body for Cycling in Scotland.
The panel is an exciting and unique opportunity for a young person to have their say in shaping the future of the sport in Scotland and inspiring others to do the same.
Being part of the panel will provide young people with opportunities to grow their skillset, get to meet new people and contribute towards the strategic objectives of Scottish Cycling – to lead, grow, partner and support across the country to develop a Nation of Cyclists.
We believe in the power of young people as leaders in sport – and can’t wait to hear about the impact that you want to make.
Vision of the Young People’s Panel
- To provide a platform for young people to share their views and influence the future development of the sport within Scotland
- To support young people to develop new life skills whilst providing them with experiences that will increase their confidence
- To support young people to become leaders, and to motivate and inspire others to get in the sport of cycling
