Volunteers

Volunteers are the backbone of grassroots football

these grassroots heroes serve the game each week voluntarily, in all weather conditions, to give you your game. 

Without our 15,000 strong army of volunteers serving the game each and every week across our county, Clubs and Leagues would simply not exist. This would see over 50,000 players without a game. 

In Hampshire alone, we have 15,000 volunteers, from all walks of life committed and dedicated to the sustainability and development of our game. Volunteers are the very lifeblood at the heart of our game. Anyone can be a volunteer, there are roles to suit everyone outside of the traditional roles of Secretary, Treasurer, Chairman etc. Other volunteer roles can be marketing & communications officers, Press Officers, Videographers, Photographers, Event Organisers, Sponsorship & Fundraising Officers and much more.

It's Everyone's Responsibility

If you feel that an adult connected to your league or club (e.g. a referee, coach or a volunteer) is mistreating someone under the age of 18, there are various confidential ways you can report this.

By ‘mistreating’, we mean behaving towards under-18s in a physical or verbal way you believe is threatening or makes the young person feel scared or bad.

Find out more and watch a short film The FA has produced explaining how to report your concerns. Of course, everything is completely confidential.

I am a League Secretary and the Registration Secretary. I see my role as the Secretary is to keep everything ticking over  nicely. As the Registration Secretary I deal with all the aspects of registering the players, transfers and dealing with any problems. I am very proud to be part of a League that has a very good committee and  does everything it can to encourage grassroots football.
