STA’s Water Safety Squad Ambassador Search

Applications for STA’s Water Safety Squad 2020 have now closed. Recruitment for 2021 will re-open September 2020!

We’re looking for five amazingly diverse young people to be a part of 2020’s STA Water Safety Squad and who would love the opportunity to be proud ambassadors of our International Learn to Swim Week.

Parents / carers, would you like your child to be the face and voice of a global water safety campaign and help us make a difference?

If so, we’re looking for children aged 7–12 years who:

  • Have a genuine enthusiasm and passion for swimming/water safety
  • Are fun and confident in front of a camera, and who’d love to be included in our campaign marketing materials, including being featured in a promo video
  • Will support our aims and help us spread the campaign message to their family and friends
  • Would like to make a difference, and create a legacy in their own community
  • Would be able and willing to travel to the West Midlands for a photo and video shoot in October (exact date and location to be confirmed)
  • Will commit to being a member of the STA Water Safety Squad for 12 months.

If this sounds of interest, please apply in writing by emailing by 13th September 2019!

Your application will need to include the following:

  • A high quality, clear photo of your nominated child
  • The child’s age
  • A reason why you are nominating your child—do they have a story to tell?
  • 50–75 words and a short video telling us why you think they would be a great member of the STA Water Safety Squad.

If your child makes it onto the shortlist, there may be a requirement for a video interview to be conducted in September.

Extra Incentives

  • All 5 STA Water Safety Squad members will be treated to a short family break in the UK
  • STAnley, our friendly water safety mascot, will visit all our squad members’ schools and host a special water safety assembly (subject to school/head teacher approval)
  • Each child will receive an official STA Water Safety Squad certificate and a goody bag.
