Start Coaching

Every sport needs coaches, and every sport has its own recognised coaching qualifications. If you are interested in coaching then first you need to identify the governing body for your chosen sport. For a comprehensive list of all recognised National governing bodies, please visit the Sport England website by clicking here.

Start Officiating

All sports need officials and there are many ways to get involved from volunteering at your local club to a career as a referee.

For a list of local clubs visit our club directory by clicking here. 

Volunteer Database

If you interested in volunteering but don't know where to go, then why not join our Volunteer Database. If there are any up coming sports events that require Marshals, Time keepers, Car parking attendants, or just need a little help we'll do our best to pare you up.
