Tameside Sports Trust Volunteering

In a bid to recruit and retain volunteers in clubs and communities, Tameside Sports Trust, offers coaching placements for volunteers in leisure centres, schools and communities. The Volunteer scheme aims to encourage new and existing volunteers to develop, learn and gain knowledge through a quality coaching and mentoring pathway into clubs or paid work.

Tameside Sports Trust offers placements to anyone aged 14 years and older. Our volunteers do not need any previous experience or qualifications they just need an enthusiasm and passion for sports leadership, coaching and physical activity. There is a wide variety of opportunities right across Tameside so if you have an interest in sport / physical activity there is something to suit everyone and volunteering is a great way to learn new skills and make new friends.

What do Sports Volunteers do?

Sports / physical activity Volunteers are placed in either a structured coaching session or within a community setting e.g. a club or youth sports club. Volunteers are placed with fully qualified sports coaches/instructors, who have a minimum of a level 2 national governing body qualification, and are also assigned a coaching mentor to provide knowledge and gain advice from.

If you are interested in volunteering with Tameside Sports Trust there are many opportunities available to you which include:

  • Assistant sports coach – assisting delivery of sports coaching and recreational sports sessions at a variety of different environments including, schools, leisure centres, multi use games areas and parks.
  • Assistant dance leader - assisting delivery of dance sessions across Tameside.
  • Event Volunteers – assisting at one of Sports Services events throughout the year such as the Tameside triathlon. The types of roles can vary from refereeing to marshalling.
