Sport in Mind – Football Volunteer Role

 It’s the beautiful game! Football is one of the most popular sessions that Sport in Mind offers and therefore we are often keen for volunteers to come along and support our coaches.

In order to volunteer, you don’t need to have a coaching qualification or be the next Lionel Messi. However, a basic understanding of the rules of the game are essential as well as the ability to engaged service users during the game.

Volunteers who attend our Sport in Mind football sessions could be asked to complete several duties. These include:

  • Refereeing
  • Selecting teams

  • Playing for a team
  • Going in goal
  • Keeping score
  • Ensuring that players have the opportunity to have a break if necessary
