Developing Youth Sections

Why start a youth section?

  1. Young people are the future of the sport, without them the sport cannot continue to flourish and grow.
  2. Young people make clubs a more vibrant place.
  3. With young people come parents, bringing both potential participants and volunteers.
  4. Having the sports future participants, coaches and committee members at the club from a young age builds a loyalty to the club.
  5. By offering training and competition opportunities for young people clubs are helping to develop the talented athletes of the future for both club and country, national success is good for all.
  6. A youth section can open the opportunity for facilities access that would otherwise not be possible e.g. schools.
  7. A youth section can be of financial benefit to clubs.
  8. Sport has wider health and social benefits for young people and helps develop life skills.
