The Swim England South West Region is looking for a keen group of six to eight young volunteers between the ages of 15-20 who are prepared to speak out about key issues or ideas they might have about their sport, volunteering or their club. The key purpose of this panel is to bring together young people from different aquatic disciplines and backgrounds to provide a youth voice for the South West Region.
Members of the panel will meet at least once a quarter, be able to share their ideas in both group and private environments and actively take part in projects which support the region including the development of the regional young volunteer programme.
The regional panel will be supported by members of the Swim England National Youth Advisory Panel and Regional Staff.
Why join the panel?
Develop communication and presentation skills
Learn to work in a small team environment and get your ideas across clearly
Meet like-minded people from different aquatic disciplines
Play a key role in shaping the actions of the region
Lead the youth voice for the Swim England South West Region.
Who are we looking for?
Young people who are between 15-20 years old
Young people who are involved in Swimming, Diving, Water polo, Artistic swimming, Open water, Para swimming or a non-swimming volunteer.
Young people who are actively involved in the sport as a participant, teacher, coach, official or volunteer.

Milton Rd Baths have served Swindon for the past 125 years so lets do everything we can to make it possible for another 125 years!
Swindon ASC are holding a Pool Party at the Oasis Leisure Centre on Friday 8th July 2016 from 7 – 8.30pm.
This is a private pool party (the swimming club have hired the whole of the Oasis pool) and includes the use of the domebuster slides and waves and is open to all swimmers, their families and friends.
Tickets cost £1 per person for club members (not just swimmers but all registered club helpers and officials) and £4 per person for non club members (e.g. parents/friends) The event is being subsidised from our Xmas fundraising monies so many thanks to the Social and Fundraising Team!
The tickets are available from Kelly Checchia. Tickets will be available from Thursday 27 May.
* Regardless of swimming ability children aged 8 and under are not allowed in to the water unless they have an adult with them in the water (max. 2 children per adult)
* Children under the age of 14 must have an adult on the premises at all times.

We hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be a fun evening!
