Volunteers are at the heart of sport; without them sport across Lincolnshire would not take place.
Lincolnshire Sports Partnership understands the difficulties experienced at all levels of sport, whether it be club, county or national, in the recruitment and retention of volunteers. We recognise the importance of volunteers and that the volunteer workforce needs to be recognised for their efforts; we can celebrate our volunteers through the Lincolnshire Sports Partnership Awards Evening.
Why should you volunteer?
By giving your time you can develop in lots of different ways – gain experience in a variety of different roles, network with key organisations, improve your life skills, make yourself more employable, and lots more!

The Level 1 Award in Sports Volunteering and the Level 2 Award in Community Sports Volunteering.
Sports Leaders UK has recently launched two new volunteering qualifications: the Level 1 Award in Sports Volunteering and the Level 2 Award in Community Sports Volunteering.
In the run up to the 2012 Games and with the success of events such as School Sports Week and Race for Life there is an ever increasing demand for sports volunteers and officials.
|The Sports Leaders UK Level 1 Award in Sports Volunteering and Level 2 Award in Community Sports Volunteering are ideal for learners who do not want to act as Sports Leaders or become Coaches but who would instead like to plan, organise and run sporting events or competitions and/or take on the role of officials.
If you are already an Approved Assessment Centre for Sports Leaders UK and have Tutors trained to deliver the Level 1 and Level 2 Awards in Sports Leadership then your school will be ready to start delivering the Sports Leaders UK volunteering qualifications.
When you apply to run a course your centre will receive access to a free Tutor Resource. The cost per learner for the Level 1 Award in Sports Volunteering is £16 and the cost per learner for the Level 2 Award in Community Sports Volunteering is £29.75. The qualifications can easily be delivered within core PE or in a few block sessions such as PSE Days and School Sports Week.
Full details of Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria are provided in the Tutor Resource, however you will find an overview of each below:
Level 1 Award in Sports Volunteering
Level 2 Award in Community Sports Volunteering
