ASA National Youth Forum Development Toolkit

The ASA National Youth Forum Development Toolkit explains how to work with young people involved in clubs to let them have their say in decision making.

Engaged young people are essential to ensure the sustainability of our aquatic clubs and swimming communities. All too often, decisions which affect young people are made with no opportunity for them to be involved in the actual decision making process.

Young people are more likely to engage with all aspects of their club, and develop as capable young leaders, with guidance and support from experienced club members. Providing young people in your club, county or region with the opportunity to work together with their like-minded peers, to have an impact on their surroundings can have a profoundly positive effect.

In 2013, the ASA Youth Forum worked with the Volunteer Engagement Team to develop the ‘Youth Forum Development Toolkit’. This toolkit provides guidance and advice to those wishing to develop a Youth Group, Forum, Council or Committee within their club or county. 

To support the toolkit, the ASA have also created a number of document templates which you may need during the start up process. These templates can be used and adapted to suit the needs of your group.

Youth Forum Logo

When creating an ASA Youth Forum, you will also have the opportunity to sign up and receive the appropriate ASA regional, county or club Youth Forum logo.

You will be able to proudly display the logo on all of your Youth Forum material to highlight that you are part of the wider Youth Forum network. Only clubs who have signed up to the network will be able to use the logo.

You will also be signed up to the following upon completion of the Logo Application Form:

  • Youth Forum Briefing Note – keeping you up to date on the Youth Forum’s activities. This includes information on how your forum can get involved.
  • ASA Volunteering News – the quarterly newsletter which is our one stop shop for everything volunteering.

To contact the Youth Forum or for general questions or enquiries, please contact ASAYouthForum@swimming.org.
