Young Leaders Days

Facilitating the development and experience of enthusiastic volunteers inside a professional sporting environment

The Young Leaders Days are run in partnership with the Yorkshire Cricket Board. The day itself gives the opportunity for young people aged 15+ to visit Headingley Stadium on a match day and experience what goes on behind the scenes and the different people that are involved in working in professional sport.Groups are invited to attend the young leaders days based on their interest in developing a career in sport.

The day itself includes talks from people involved in professional sport on how they got involved and developed their careers. This includes coaches, physios, groundstaff, media and marketing and hospitality professionals.

The young leaders are given advice on how to get involved in sport at all levels. There is also a tour of the stadium and an opportunity to watch some of the cricket.
