The 7th June is fast approaching, meaning that The Co-operative StreetGames Young Volunteers Conference and Awards 2012 at the home of the Salford City Reds is nearly here. To that end, we’re delighted to announce our two guest speakers for the day.

Olympian and six-time World Champion canoeist, Anna Hemmings MBE, has been confirmed as the Conference Guest Speaker, whilst Paralympic 800m gold medallist Tim Prendergast of New Zealand will be speaking at the Awards.

“I'm very excited to be involved in The Co-operative StreetGames National Young Volunteers Conference.”, said Anna. “It's a fantastic opportunity for young volunteers to develop and learn how to deliver fun energetic sports session and their own events and festivals. I love the concept of doorstep sport coaches.”
