EMPOWER THE FUTURE LEADERS
OF YOUR CLUB TODAY
The program is available to young sports people aged 14 -18 from sporting clubs currently sponsored by the Rye, Dromana, Rosebud Your Community Bank.
This is a unique opportunity only available to a small number of clubs.
Our organisation is committed to diversity and inclusion, and we encourage you to consider this when nominating candidates. For equal gender representation, we ask that each club looks at nominating the same number of participants from each gender.
The Your Community Bank Sports Leadership Program includes a 5-day residential camp, a Mentor Program, a Community Action Day and a Graduation.
Skippers will attend a 5-day residential camp. Specifically, the program includes workshops on effective communication, values, strengths and growing edges, public speaking, vulnerability and much more.
Skippers will invite someone of influence from their club to be their Mentor for the duration of their program journey. The Mentor will engage in 5 fortnightly workshops with their Skipper. A focus point throughout the sessions are the healthy and unhealthy cultures in sporting clubs and possible ways of improving this.
COMMUNITY ACTION DAY
A showcase of the leadership, communication and teamwork skills the Skippers have learnt throughout the program. Skippers, along with their Mentors, will lead and create an event to engage their entire communities.
An opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the journey that the Skippers and Mentors have been on.
The Your Community Bank are sponsoring each athlete $1000 to subsidies the cost of their participation.
This program requires 100% attendance for all program dates, including camp, fortnightly mentor sessions, Community Action Project and graduation. If you are concerned about this requirement please contact us directly.
It is not required that you have chosen and/or made contact with a mentor prior to the camp. We will run through a session on camp all about the best way to chose your mentor! However, if you know who you would like your mentor to be feel free to make contact with them before camp.
That’s okay! This is a great opportunity to meet like-minded peers and expand your friendship group.
Thanks to Bendigo Bank, this program is subsidised in cost. However, the $100 contribution will cover food and accommodation for the entirety of the program.
