Soccer School Coaches

This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

Newcastle Football Club are looking for new volunteer coaches to help run their soccer school youth football programme. The soccer school is all inclusive regardless of ability or gender. It is more than just football, it's about social engagement, fun and learning. There is no experience necessary to take on the role, just a passion to help run the sessions. The sessions run from 9-12 on Saturday mornings. However, you can attend as little or as often as you like. The position offers as a gateway into the club for players and coaches (coaches who are looking for practical experience or something to put on their CV for future work opportunities) and the club will help support you in gaining relevant qualifications. If enough volunteers are found, the club would like to start offering disability football, OAP and 'mum's' sessions alongside their current offering.
