Volunteers are an essential part of the Spartans Family. We have a variety of opportunities in all of our departments. If you are interested in doing us please do get in touch!
"I started with Spartans FC when I was doing work experience in 2012. I helped to coach the 2005's team. In 2015 I went on tour with them which was amazing. It's been good to see the kids go from playing 5 a-side, 7 a-side and now 11 a-side. It's been a great journey. I love coaching the kids, they learn really fast and sometimes I even learn from them!".
I want to be a coach in the future.
"I'm now coaching Woodlands Special School with the Connections coaches on a Friday. I've done my 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 coaching awards and I want to be a coach in the future. I've only got 9 weeks left in my NC Sport and Fitness course. I really liked helping out at Woodlands with connections and I've got work experience set up in their sports department so that I can learn about more sports. I coach at SatSun football and I just got a Saltire Award for this.”
"Robbie has learning difficulties and the coaching team at Spartans Community Football Academy have been so supportive. Volunteering has made a huge difference to his confidence and it’s really great that he can learn news skills and do what he loves. I would encourage other people with learning difficulties to get involved with The Academy.”
Volunteering is just one example of how we contribute to developing young people in our community.
