​Surrey Youth Games Volunteer​Active Surrey​Surrey Sports Park
You don't need to be netball umpire or know how to score squash or tennis to help deliver Surrey's biggest youth sporting event. Active Surrey, a not-for-profit organisation, is recruiting volunteers with business and people skills to help deliver the 21st Specsavers Surrey Youth Games. Held right on your doorstep, at the Surrey Sports Park, the event takes place over the weekend of 17-18 June, plus there are some volunteer roles available on 15-16th and 19th.

 

500 volunteers help make this event happen. Would you like to be one of them? You could be part of the team which enables more than 4000 young people try new sports, make friends and get active. If you can register participants, help organise young children for a medal ceremony, drive a van or ask some interview questions, you have just the skills Active Surrey is looking for. And if you do know about tennis, squash or netball – or any other sports – they would love to have you too.

Venue Services Volunteers​Women's Lacrosse World Cup​Surrey Sports Park

​The Women's Lacrosse World Cup is being held at Surrey Sports Park from the 12 -22 July 2017. It will be the largest women's sporting event in the UK in 2017 with 25 international teams taking place in a 10 day competition. ​ ​

Volunteers will carry out a range of duties to ensure that all the spectators attending the World Cup or the Festival running alongside, have an excellent experience - this would include some of:

Ticketing and Accreditation checks

Pitch Steward

Ambulance Support

Car parking

Mascot and escort

We are also looking for Camera Operators - 6 people needed daily from 13-21 July

The Camera Operators will work with our TV Production company to film the matches for live streaming; appropriate instruction and support will be given.  After the event there may be the possibility for future paid work with the company.

All volunteers will receive a ground pass for the days that they volunteer so that they can watch play when they are not on duty. A packed lunch will be provided.

​Sports Council Volunteer​Sport Haslemere​Haslemere and surrounding area

Sport Haslemere helps to promote sport and activities in Midhurst, Liphook, Bordon, Churt, Dunsfold, Chiddingfold, Haslemere and surrounding areas. From traditional sports to ways of keeping fit and active.

This opportunity would suit someone doing a Sports Management course or similar.  Roles would include:

  • Helping to update and improve the Sport Haslemere website.  Also promoting social media.
  • Helping to set up disabled sports sessions – could be any sport such as hockey or trampolining or tennis.
  • Coaching at these disabled sport sessions.
  • Helping to set up and market the Haslemere Festival of Sport 2017 on Monday August 28th. Last year we had 18 different clubs and about 700 people came.  (We appreciate you may be on holiday then, but there is a lot of groundwork to do beforehand).
  • Touching base with various clubs and seeing what events  they would like publicising and seeing what new equipment they need. Sport Haslemere may be able to find grant money for new cricket nets or a new roller.
  • Helping to promote sport in the larger local secondary schools.  To ask the local clubs when their training nights are and to see if they will provide taster sessions for potential new members from these schools.

Time commitment: 3 hours per week – but very flexible.  More if you wish – there is plenty to do and perhaps two students may be interested working in tandem. We will pay travel expenses
