#MyClubPeople can help your club to recruit and retain volunteers. If you need an extra pair of hands to help at your club then we can support you.

In 2016, Yorkshire Sport Foundation supported clubs across South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire to recruit and train 92 volunteers as part of #MyClubPeople.  Of those, 77 people filled non-coaching roles including club welfare officer and volunteer coordinator.

As well as a focus on non-coaching volunteers, clubs could also get a grant of up to £150 to recruit young coaches.
