Junior Leaders Programme Information

Junior Leaders Programme at Queen's Sport

The Junior Leaders assist activity and team leaders to deliver activities and coaching for children aged 6 – 13 who attend Queen’s Sport’s annual summer scheme.

As part of the programme, workshops are delivered to the Junior Leaders focusing on good relations.  Co-ordinator Chloe McIlwaine said "We are trying to create a positive attitudinal change and develop new friendships between young people from different backgrounds; and we want to create an appreciation of and learning about different cultures as well".

The Junior Leaders who go through the programme achieve a recognised sports leadership qualification and are provided with expert training from Queen’s Sport staff.

The programme allows the Junior Leaders to take part in and deliver a wide range of sporting activities, boosting their interpersonal skills, future opportunities, health and friendships.
