Get into Volunteering
Reasons to Volunteer
Grassroots football in Durham County wouldn't exist without the thousands of volunteers who give up their time each and every week to support the grassroots game.
A football club or league is about more than just the players on the pitch. Here's just some of the benefits from becoming a football volunteer:
- Gaining experience in a certain area
- Personal development
- Chance to network
- Giving back to your local community
- Gaining a qualification, and much much more
If you’re new to volunteering, people within your club or league will be on hand to support you and help you out. Additionally, if you need further support, Durham FA are here to help.
The only roles where there is a requirement for qualifications are where there is constant contact with youth players (Under 18 and below), such as coach, manager, physio and welfare officer. You will also be expected to complete an FA Criminal Records Check if you are fulfilling any of these roles.
