Volunteering in Shropshire


Looking To Get Involved In Local Volunteering? Want To Learn Leadership Skills?

Local football is thriving thanks to the army of volunteers who turn out each week to support the running of the game.

Part of this army are young volunteers that fulfill a massive variety of roles within local football from coaching & refereeing, to finance & marketing... and the list goes on...

Now more than ever, local grassroots football can provide young volunteers with a no-pressure platform to develop professional skills in practical situations.

The FA host a programme called Football Futures and Shropshire FA also run a Youth Council for young volunteers across the county. To get involved with either of these programmes please contact the Shropshire FA Team who will be able to provide you with more information.
