Sports Volunteering


Research has shown that students engaged in coaching and sports volunteering earn on average £4000-£5000 more than those who don’t.

We helped over 65 students gain coaching and officials qualifications in 2017/18 and we have more funding available for students this year. Check out some of the students we supported last year below.
