Volunteering opportunities available for aspiring Sports Coaches

Are you aged 18+, enjoy sport and physical activity and would like to get into coaching?

Salisbury City Council’s Activity Leaders are looking for volunteers to help them deliver their sports and activity program across Salisbury. Volunteers will be supported to help engage participants on our low-cost or free activities to a wide array of participants throughout the city.

Whether you wish to gain experience in coaching or just want to give back to our community, volunteering is an amazing way to grow your skills and confidence when delivering activities.

Megan who previously volunteered for our dodgeball project now works for the Council as a Community Development Officer and said, “Volunteering in the community has provided me with invaluable experience, helped me discover further opportunities available to me, made training opportunities more accessible and allowed me to meet new people. The experience I gained from volunteering in the community has been integral to being able to work as a Community Development Officer which is something I probably wouldn’t have considered or known about if I had not been already involved in community coaching.”

Salisbury City Council will require a DBS Check for applicants and an informal interview; this is to help us better support you and make sure you get the most out of your volunteering time. On occasion, the Council may be able to support volunteers into accessing training opportunities to further develop their knowledge or qualifications. In addition, we cannot guarantee that volunteering will lead to paid employment, although if this is a career route you wish to explore, we would like to support or advise you to achieve this.

• Monday: Friary Afterschool Club 3:30-4:30 / Ability Counts Football 5pm-6pm
