Sports Volunteering Scheme

Sport Volunteers are one of the corner stones of Exeter’s success across sport and recreation not only across the university but also in our community. The Sports Volunteer Scheme is designed to recognise this and identify areas for further development of these volunteers, not only aiding their sports clubs but also personal employability on graduation.

The scheme categorises volunteers into 3 levels (Gold, Silver, and Bronze) depending on their level of commitment to providing sporting opportunities for other students at the university and to the local community. Any student may apply whether they are a coach, official, in our student clubs, local community or national/international programs.
