In order to participate, athletes are required to be accompanied by a team official who will have responsibility for athletes attending the workshops or festival sessions. By signing up for the workshop, the nominated team official accepts duty of care for athletes during workshop or festival participation.

Organisers & Facilitators
The Commonwealth Youth Games Athlete Personal Development Workshops will be facilitated by the Commonwealth Youth Sport for Development and Peace Working Group, a network of young leaders supported by the Commonwealth Secretariat.

The Just Play Festivals will be facilitated by the Football Federation of Samoa in partnership with UNICEF. Just Play is an Oceania Football Confederation programme delivered in partnership with the Australian and New Zealand Government, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Union of European Football Association (UEFA) Foundation for Children and the Australian Football Federation.

The programme is supported by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) and Samoa Commonwealth Youth Games 2015 Organising Committee working with the Commonwealth Secretariat and UNICEF. Assistance has been provided by the Football Federation of Samoa through the provision of facilities and assistance for the workshop and delivery of the festival programme.

Safeguarding and Child Welfare
The workshop and festivals will operate in full accordance with the Samoa Commonwealth Youth Games Child Welfare and Safeguarding Policy and Plan.
