Youth Sports Development Officer
In 2009 Waterford Sports Partnership appointed Vicki Langan to the newly created position of Youth Sports Development Officer (YSDO). This new position has been funded under the Young Peoples Services & Facilities Fund through the HSE from the Office of the Minister of Children and Youth Affairs for the past three years.

The overriding goal of the YSDO is to increase participation levels of young people aged 10 to 21 years at risk in Waterford City, in sport and physical activity. The YSDO is responsible for supporting the development and delivery of current and future sport and physical activity programmes for individuals and creating opportunities for them to participate in sustainable sport while identifying training needs. Furthermore, any work undertaken will support the work programme of Waterford Sports Partnership.

In 2011 Vicki contined her work to increase the participation levels of youth in sport and physical activity before leaving WSP in October.

Brian O'Neill joined Waterford Sports Partnership as Youth Sports Development Officer in October 2011. Brian works with local and citywide groups while also assessing the need for sports programmes in the city with a particular emphasis to engage ‘hard to reach youth’. Brian's main objective is to work with local facilities to encourage greater participation for youth at risk. Over the coming months, Brian will initate programmes

2016 Youth Re-engaging Programme

This programme works by means of a referral process. If you are aged between 16yrs and 23yrs and have disengaged in sport and physical activity for whatever reason or you know someone that may fit into that bracket then this is for you. You can download a referral here. Over the past few years we have received many referrals from young adults, parents and youth workers enabling the YSDO to make contact with the young people that are hoping to once again or for the first time get involved in a local club to participate in the sport or simple volunteer.
