We would love you to Get Involved

Published by Steve May on

There are lots of different roles required to run a football club, from physical roles such as a coach, to behind the scenes roles such as secretary, but without them, the club cannot provide children in our community with an opportunity to play football.

As part of our succession planning we are now looking for enthusiastic individuals, who are able to get more involved with the club, and help secure the future of youth football in Alresford.

Below are some of the roles that we require and a brief explanation of each.

Club Secretary

The Secretary is one of the most important roles in a club or league. The main point of contact for Hampshire FA, team managers and clubs/leagues, the Secretary will look after the administrative duties for the club/league. No experience necessary, but a well organised individual with basic computer skills would be an advantage.

Treasurer

The treasurer’s role will be to ensure that the club stays financially sustainable, pay all expenses, and collect any monies owed to the club. A financial background with an experience in accounting or bookkeeping is essential.

Welfare Officers Assistant

The club welfare officer ensures that the club operates a safe, child friendly environment and promotes good practice in line with the club’s Child Protection Policy. We are looking to appoint and assistant to shadow our current Welfare Officer with a view to taking over the role .

Manager / Coach – Under 7’s and Under 8’s Girls & Boys

All teams require a manager to organise the team for fixtures, lead the team on matchdays, and organise training, and this will also include coaching the team as well to develop their ability. We are looking for volunteers to guide the next generation of players through our club. No coaching experience is necessary as you will initially be supported by Southampton FC coaches and receive training courses through Hampshire FA.

Youth Leadership and Volunteering for people aged 16-25

Many young people will be looking for an opportunity to better themselves, to gain experience, learn a skill or even a qualification that helps with their personal or career progression. Much of the activity that takes place in a football club can also be viewed as marketing, communications, management of events, sports administration, customer satisfaction, sports photography and social media. Just the sort of thing employees or universities are looking for in addition to academic qualifications.

To help us with the task of succession planning, coaching and to ensure new ideas and wider involvement, we we would like to investigate the possibility of a youth committee and leadership program to increase the loyalty of young people and give them ownership of their club.

If you would like to get involved with the club, and are able to volunteer for any of the roles available, or are a young person that would like to engage with the club and be part of our youth leadership program, please submit your details here
