Young volunteers: support the 2016 School Games National Finals

Home » Search

The 2016 School Games National Finals is a multi-sport event for the UK's elite young athletes and will be hosted in Loughborough for the first time, from 1 to 4 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 athletes’ 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, the Go-Ride team is looking for 14 enthusiastic young volunteers to take on the roles of Team Attaché and Assistant Team Manager for each of the 14 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 would mean that you can 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.

If you are interested in applying for this rare and exciting opportunity, please take a look at the event information to find out if it’s for you. To submit your application, just download an application form, complete it and send it back to us at
