Volunteering in sport

It takes a special kind of person to volunteer: someone who's in it for the love of sport rather than money.

But if you decide to volunteer, you'll find there are other rewards that have nothing to do with being paid.

There's the excitement of being part of a team, even if you're not on the pitch. There's the chance to change gear from your studies or your normal working week. You'll get to meet new people, make new friends and build skills that you can add to your CV.

And it's a great feeling to know that your efforts have helped a local athlete or team to victory.
