Competition Organiser training is offered as part of sportscotland’s contribution to help develop young people as leaders in sport. We believe that young people can make a valuable contribution to influencing and leading in sport and contributing to building a world class sporting system. A priority for us is to work with partners to ensure that young people have access to a range of leadership roles and are encouraged and supported to reach their potential.
Competition is integral to sport. One of the key roles a young person can undertake is as an event/competition organiser. In this role they will have responsibility to plan, organise and deliver events and competitions. The training locally delivered in schools/communities to young people will equip them with the skills, knowledge and understanding to undertake the role of event/competition organiser.
The aim of training is to enable young people to experience and identify the essential aspects of well-organised, safe, fun, fair and inclusive intra-school competition. The training is intended for secondary school pupils aged 14+.
Here are some of the resources which can be used during the delivery of the training or subsequently when undertaking the planned competitions:
