2021 School Games National Finals - Register as Volunteer now

This year's 2021 School Games are being held at Loughborough University from 2nd September – 5th September but for it to be a success they need a host of volunteers to help out. This is where you come in!

The 2021 School Games is a multi-sport event for the UK's elite athletes of school age and the aim is to create an inspirational and motivational setting, that not only provides our elite young sports people with the opportunity to thrive and perform at the highest levels, but encourages more young people to take part and succeed in sport.

Ten National Governing Bodies of Sport are involved in the planning and running of their competitions at this event. Of the eleven sports, three of them, Athletics, Cycling & Triathlon, incorporate disability events, and two of them, Wheelchair Basketball and Wheelchair Tennis are Paralympic only sports. The remainder of the sports are, BMX, Hockey, Modern Pentathlon (Laser Run), Netball and Women`s Cricket.

Around 1,200 of the nation's finest young sports stars will participate in this event.

In order to successfully deliver the event around 200 volunteers are needed, who will act as representatives for the event, so friendly, outgoing and reliable volunteers to fulfil a variety of roles are required.

It is through this event the 2021 School Games Volunteering Team 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, you will also be required to complete the relevant checks.

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