Join the CIMSPA Youth Panel

Find out more about the Youth Panel


We are creating the CIMSPA Youth Panel to provide our Board of Trustees with an authentic perspective from young people involved and interested in sport and physical activity. The panel will be diverse in every sense – gender, ethnicity, location, education background and job experience – we want our panel to include students, employees, apprentices, volunteers, athletes and spectators.

You don’t have to be a CIMSPA member to join the panel nor do you have to be working in sport and physical activity. All we ask is that you are passionate about the power of sport and physical activity to encourage an active nation and support great careers within our sector.

Most of the panel’s work will take place through online meetings and groups, but we’ll start with a kick-off meeting at Loughborough University*.

If you are aged 16-25 this is your chance to both influence the policy and direction of the sector’s chartered professional body, and to gain some great experience of working together with a diverse panel of enthusiastic peers to ensure that CIMSPA listens to the views of young people.

Interview dates for the Youth Panel will commence week beginning 22 October depending on the applicants’ location.

The first meeting will be held on Friday 16 November and the second will be held on Wednesday 13 February.

Anybody that wishes to apply should ideally be available for the first two meetings.
