Coaches, Officials & Volunteers


Volunteers are the lifeblood of the club. Without our fantastic volunteers there would be no club.

 

Volunteers perform a range of roles within the club - volunteering may include, (but is not limited to!)

  • Coaching 
  • Officiating at events
  • Organising fundraising and social-events
  • Organising and marshalling races
  • Helping to maintain the clubhouse
  • Making the tea on training evenings. 
  • Taking the minutes at meetings
  • Training to become a qualified first aider
  • Volunteering to become a committee member

There is a role for everyone, whatever their interests, skill-set or availability.

 

Any coaching and officiating course fees will be paid by the club. Further details on coaching and officiating can be found via the links on the left.
