Volunteering in sport is one of the most diverse, accessible and rewarding opportunities you will find.
You don’t need to have picked up a racket, kicked a ball or have existing contact with a club to get involved. From coaching to catering and first aid to fundraising, there’s a huge variety of interesting roles volunteers can have which play a crucial role in encouraging and supporting participants from grassroots and club level right through to performance sport.
Sport clubs in East Lothian survive on the hard work and commitment of their volunteers and gain greatly from the expertise that many of their members and parents have. If you've always thought of poking your head in to see if you can help with anything do... you may just have the skills they are looking for.
Within Active Schools, Sports Development, Healthy Living and our local sports clubs we are always looking for more volunteers to get involved with our programmes so we can continue to offer local, low cost activity for all, children, young people and adults alike.
No formal qualifications are needed, just enthusiasm, dedication and a positive attitude to promoting a healthy lifestyle. As a thank you, Active East Lothian provide all volunteers with access to free training opportunities through the Fit to Coach programme to help give you more confidence and skills to deliver a variety of activities.
Do you know someone in the community who is doing great work and deserves to be recognised? Do you want to see the depth of Volunteers we have here in East Lothian...?
