2022 School Games National Finals - Volunteering opportunities available!

2022 School Games are still looking for volunteers for the Games at Loughborough University from 1st to 4th September 2022!

About the Games

School Games National Finals 2022 is a national multi-sport event for talented young people in the UK. It takes place at Loughborough University from Thursday 1st September to Sunday 4th September.

This year 1000+ school-age athletes from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will compete at venues across Loughborough University campus/area, Leicester and Derby in 10 sports. These sports are Athletics, Cycling BMX, Cricket, Cycling Road & Track, Hockey, Modern Pentathlon, Netball, Triathlon, Wheelchair Basketball & Wheelchair Tennis.

Now in its 15th year, the event creates an inspirational and motivational setting to not only provide young athletes with the opportunity to thrive and perform at the highest level, but also to support their developmental journeys and those of coaches, officials and event staff involved.

The below link is a trailer for this year and brings to life the high energy developmental environment staff will be supporting to create by getting involved.

This is where you come in!

For School Games to successfully deliver the event, they need around 200 volunteers, who will act as representatives for the event, and so they are looking for friendly, outgoing and reliable volunteers to fulfill a variety of roles.

It is through this event that School Games aim to reward and recognise a diverse workforce of skilled, trained and enthusiastic volunteers and inspire them to continue their volunteering journey beyond this event.

For the majority of roles, no specific experience is required, as training (including safeguarding training) and briefings will take place prior to the event to ensure that you are fully prepared for your role and responsibilities, you will also be required to complete the relevant checks.

As a volunteer you will receive School Games branded event kit and a packed lunch during your shifts.

Registration

Registration for volunteering at the School Games opened on 4th April 2022 and they would like to have as many local people as possible volunteering at this event.

As School Games are looking to recruit a large number of volunteers, they would therefore very much value your help in volunteering for this event.

Thank you - 2022 School Games Volunteering Team
