Find out how you can volunteer at the School Games National Finals.

For us to successfully deliver the event we need between 150 and 200 volunteers who will act as representatives for the event, so we are looking for friendly, outgoing, and reliable volunteers to fulfil a variety of roles. 

It is through this event we 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, and you will be required to complete the relevant checks. 

For some roles, it will be beneficial, but not essential, to have experience of working with young people in a sports-based setting, have good communication and listening skills, be able to follow instructions, be able to work on your own initiative, and work effectively as a team. 

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

Individual Volunteers 

Please note: 

  • You must be 16 or over to volunteer at the Games as an individual volunteer. For School Group volunteers, please see the section below. 
  • We will require a few volunteers during the weekend/days leading up to the start of the Games to carry out duties including general venue set up, bag packing and general administration tasks in preparation for the event. 
  • If you indicate on your registration form that you are interested in a particular role, we cannot guarantee that you will be given this role; however we will do our utmost to put you into a similar role. 

  • When completing the information on your availability to volunteer, please ensure that where possible, you are actually available at that time, and willing to volunteer at that time. We are aware situations do change, so will look to accommodate any changes if required. 

Volunteers must be available for a minimum of three shifts throughout the Games but if you can do more, that would be great so please indicate this on your application. 


Registration for volunteering at the School Games is now open and we would like to have as many local people and University students as possible volunteering at this event.
