The most rewarding of all roles. No previous football experience is needed. The club will fund your training and our team of coach mentors are here to support your development.
Just park your ego and be nice to the kids. Simple!
If you are good with communications and embrace technology then maybe you could run the team administration? Confirm the matches with opposition and referee, report the results of games back to the league. Our technology makes it easy. All of the communication can pretty much be run from your smartphone!
It’s mandatory to ensure a qualified first aider attends every training session and match day. All our coaches receive first aid training as part of their FA Level 1. It’s even better when there’s a dedicated first aider present to allow coaches to concentrate on coaching.
On match days the Respect Steward is there to help the club ensure that the Respect Programme is followed for the benefit of all participants. Use your own knowledge of your fellow spectators to help prevent abuse, foul language or other unacceptable behaviour. Welcome the opposition manager and referee and promote a friendly atmosphere.
The offside rule is introduced from 9v9 football and that is when referee assistants are required to run the line. Training is available for parents and best practice is to have more than one parent qualified to ensure there is always someone available at matches. It’s
important to note that referee assistants must pass an FA Enhanced Criminal Record Check, along with all other club officials.
Join the Committee
When you registered online you were asked if you would like to volunteer and to tell us some of the skills you can put to use. It’s our responsibility to follow up your offer and find a suitable role for you to help the club. If sometimes we don’t follow up as quickly as we should, please don’t take that as a rejection! We value your contribution.
