Children and Young People

There are plenty of opportunities to work with young people from sports sessions      delivered by student coaches, the holiday camps or after school clubs, to working with local school children with behavioural difficulties in weekly sessions to develop their confidence. There is also the chance for you to gain coaching qualifications and awards while volunteering on these projects.

As well as our regular sessions we also offer a range of one off opportunities:

Holiday Camps – Working with kids aged 4-11 playing loads of fun sports, games and activities on our multi-sport camps (think dodgeball, football, parachute games, crash mat relays and more!). Don’t worry if you’re not an expert, we’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to support our team of coaches.

Junior Rowing Development – Be part of a team of students working towards developing Junior Rowing in County Durham including Indoor Rowing competitions, High Performance Academy, coaching schools sessions or holiday camps. Commit as much or a little time as you can and mentoring or qualifications also available to volunteers.

Disability Gifted and Talented – We’re looking for five volunteers to support and develop young athletes though talent ID days and workshops throughout the year.

One Off Events – We host a range of events including Mini Olympics, Charity Fun Runs, School Games and Mini Mud Run Fun Days. We rely heavily on the involvement of volunteers for both planning and execution on the day.
