Why volunteer?

We are looking for volunteers to help everyone take part in sport. And of course when we say volunteers, this can be anything from coaches, kit washers, grass mowers, and even orange cutter upper-ers.

Our aspirations

Our Coaching Strategy 2010-2016 sets out very ambitious targets for us to get 10% of the Welsh population actively involved in coaching and volunteering in sport. Based on the current popualtion that's an increase from 113,000 to 240,000.

So why not get involved?

Before you think you may not have time to help out and volunteer, think again. You may only need to come along for one or two hours every week, pretty much whatever suits best. And volunteering is a rewarding and satisfying way to put something back into your community. 

But why else should you volunteer?

  • Recognition of your commitment to helping your community
  • Opportunity to make a difference
  • Gain work experience, which can be added to your CV
  • Opportunity to gain additional qualifications such as coaching badges
  • Training and devleopment opportunities

Don't just take out word for it!

People all across Wales are making a difference to sport in their community. Find out more about how 90 year old Betty Gray has dedicated over 50 years to table tennis in Swansea. Inspirtational stuff I am sure you'll agree.

We have some videos as well which you can find in the navigation on the right hand side of this page so check them out.

So what are you waiting for?

So if you have been inspired by Betty's story, or fancy giving something back to sport in your community, sign up today via our online 'Behind Every Star' registration form.

We look forward to you joining our team.
