Sport relies on volunteers heavily to carry on functioning. All clubs need volunteers at one time or another, not just participants. By being a volunteer in sport you are giving something back especially in some cases if you have been a participant in the past. You can volunteer as little or as often as you like!
Volunteering in something that you may not have done before is a good way to learn new skill. You may have to go on a course to learn or update new areas of expertise such as a First Aid, Disability Inclusion Training or Multi Skills.
By volunteering you automatically build your skills and experience; in many cases this experience will look good to potential employers. More and more people are being taken on at work because of experience they have gained in volunteering. Sport and physical activity is of course a very popular hobby for many and working in a sporting environment can build the skills you need.

I love delivering the sessions and having FUN! I also ask the children for feedback regularly, so it is good to know that they have FUN too. I also enjoy planning the sessions so that the children can get the most out of the time we have
I look forward to volunteering each week and learning new skills. I find it extremely rewarding watching children’s faces light up when they take part in sport and more importantly having fun
Without volunteers my club simply wouldn’t exist, the time they give as little as 1 hr a week or 2 can have a huge impact on people lives, THANK YOU
