VOLUNTEERING

 

Active East Herts are working closely with Herts Sports Partnership to provide and develop volunteer opportunities in East Hertfordshire.

 

What are volunteers?

Volunteers are essential in making sporting events happen. Whether it’s getting the kit ready for training, or driving players to matches and competitions, or even providing refreshments for the players, these individuals help to keep clubs running. Furthermore, volunteers can help to make a sporting event a great success by helping organisers and participants alike.

 

Ultimately, regardless of the role you choose to take, you can help to make sport happen however you want, and a whole range of people will benefit from your contribution.

 

Why volunteer?

Play more of the sports you enjoy. This is your chance to keep active through sport and to help others get involved too. By taking part in something you enjoy, your passion and enthusiasm can rub off on and inspire others. So not only will you enjoy yourself, but you’ll encourage others to take part and have fun, without realising it!

It looks great for your CV. By helping out, you’ll gain some valuable experience which can add another string to your bow. And don’t forget skills and experience gained from one role/event can often be transferable to other opportunities you come across in the future.

 

Volunteer opportunity

Champions required! Do you have what it takes to help community sport and physical activity?

The Herts Sports Partnership is seeking to recruit 200 volunteer champions to build on the success of the Hertfordshire Year of Physical Activity (HYOPA) campaign. As the campaign strives to make Hertfordshire the most active county, the Champions project is being implemented as a legacy scheme designed to help everyday people and non-traditional groups get involved in sport and physical activity volunteering. It offers both new and current volunteers the opportunity for upskilling, with a series of free training workshops being offered across the county. These workshops will help equip individuals with the skills necessary to volunteer in the sport and physical activity sector, with additional benefits including access to further training, kit, and immediate opportunities within the community.

The 3 hour workshops will be running throughout May and June with a variety of times and venues available across the county. To book onto the East Herts course please click the link below:
