The National Session for Young Participants will be held on Saturday, 20 August – Sunday 21 August 2022 at Erdiston Teachers’ Training  College. There is still an opportunity for young persons between the ages of 20 and 30 years to participate in this exciting programme. You are encouraged to select a young person from your sport and enroll him/her. You have until Friday, 05 August 2022 to send the name of the individual/s to the undersigned. However, you should submit your names as soon as possible, since acceptance is on a first come first served basis. Also, remember that participants in this seminar are eligible for selection to attend the International Session for Young Participants 2023 (recently renamed the International Session for Young Olympic Ambassadors) in Greece.
