Leadership & Volunteering


Leadership Academy 2014

The South Cambs School Sports Partnership is passionate about providing opportunities for as many young people as possible to grow their leadership skills, gain experience in sports leadership and develop essential life skills such as communication, organisation and team work.

We offer young people an extensive sports leadership and volunteering programme through the South Cambs SSP Leadership Academy. The Leadership Academy is open to young people aged 14 years plus in any South Cambs secondary school with an application/selection process every summer term.


What is the Leadership Academy?

  • A ‘leadership club’ for young people aged 14-16 who are committed to active volunteering
  • A programme to support your development as the best leaders and volunteers you can be
  • Training and volunteering opportunities which will help to develop your interpersonal skills, enhance your CV and provide a career pathway
  • A team of young people that help us to deliver clubs, competitions, festivals and events to children across South Cambs, allowing them to enjoy the benefits of sport
