Sports Coach

This volunteer role is an opportunity to make a difference to families in the Stobswell Area of Dundee.

Caird Park Community Sports Hub and Dundee Active Schools in partnership run a Family Activity programme for families from the Stobswell area on a Wednesday between 5pm and 6pm at the DISC.

The programme focuses on getting families active and also supplying the families with food bags to ensure the families receive a free and healthy evening meal. We are looking to recruit volunteers to work alongside our team to deliver a variety of sports to families on a weekly basis.

Experience required

Previous experience of coaching/leading sports sessions is desirable but not essential.
Having previous experience coaching or in a sporting environment would definitely help the potential volunteers but not essential.
Simply willing to learn, be enthusiastic and help others is all that matters.

Travel details

Training details

We can get you along to the programme to give you a better understanding of the
opportunity and speak to other staff/volunteers involved.
