VOLUNTEERS ARE THE BACKBONE OF GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL.
Without the time, dedication and commitment from the estimated 400,000 volunteers in England, the 37,000 clubs would simply not exist. A football club is about more than just the players on the pitch.
The Army FA recognises the value of volunteers in running and developing football at every level. Not only is becoming a volunteer rewarding to the Regiment or league you're with, but it can also bring a number of personal benefits, including:
- It could look good on your CR.
- You can develop new and existing skills (Coaching/Refereeing).
- You'll be helping to develop and grow grassroots football.
SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBILITY
Whatever your involvement in football, you have a responsibility to make our game as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone.
This is particularly true if your role as a volunteer involves working or being with children and young people under the age of 18.
