Swim England Youth Champion Award

In the 150th anniversary year, the National Youth Advisory Panel (NYAP) teamed up with the Swim England Volunteering Team to create a Youth Champion Award to celebrate and recognise individuals who champion the youth voice within the aquatic community. As one of the Swim England National Awards , the award aims to showcase the present to inspire the future.

Youth Champion Award Nomination Criteria

The individual being nominated for the award must:

  • Have done, and continues to, champion the voice of young people (U25yrs) within swimming and aquatics
  • Have a clear passion for the sport
  • Made a contribution which has a lasting/sustained impact
  • Has made a volunteering commitment or advocacy (eg. committee/campaign/fundraising)
  • Have made a contribution not to be forgotten

NB: There is no age limit but the nominee and their actions must be recent/current.

The winner each year will be chosen from the nominations by the NYAP. The winner will receive formal recognition from Swim England to thank them for their contributions and will be invited to the Swim England National Awards in November.
