The national programme sees schools select 2 new YA’s each year that will be ambassadors for sport with their school and local community.

The conference was this year lead by Euan Burton, Commonwealth Gold medal winning Judo Player, and was also attended by Eve Muirhead, Winter Olympic medal winning curler.

They will be soon looking to start some new initiatives within the school, with the help of Caitlin Knox, our YA of last year, so look out for them around the school be ready to get involved.
