We are pleased to announce that a Young Volunteer Development Day will be running at Barnsley Sports Academy, Honeywell Sports Centre, Barnsley, S75 1BP on Saturday 21st March 2015. This is a fantastic opportunity for young people within aquatics in the Yorkshire and Humber areas. The day is informative and interactive and all those who attend will leave with a number of ASA recognised qualifications enabling them to support their club, contribute to their CV and potentially their GCSEs or NVQ course work. Places are open to 16-25 year olds who are part of a club within Yorkshire and Humber. There is NO COST to attend the day, however places will initially be limited to two spaces per club. Additional places will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Application forms will be provided to each club within the area or they can be downloaded from the NER website. Applications need to be received by Monday 2nd March 2015.
Several clubs from the region benefitted from attending a Swim21 Club Development workshop which was held at Barnsley Sports Academy on Sunday 18th January.

Attendees were able to access information on the swim21 portal through the computers at the venue and provided with one to one support on how to access and upload appropriate information for the various elements.
