NOTE: As of February 2019 are requesting 20-30 new volunteers to fill rotas to help out as we launch the new academy and for the summary season of events.

Like all sports clubs, we can only operate with the goodwill of many people helping out. We expect most parents and carers to volunteer to help in some capacity while their children are with the club; and it’s common for families who are more active in the club to feel much more engaged and get greater enjoyment from athletics. We have lots of opportunities for volunteering and, wherever possible, we run rotas to share the tasks out fairly.

Whether you are an athlete or parent or just want to make a difference in your community – there is a role that you could do:

  • Coaches and coaching assistants to help us all train and develop
  • Officials and marshalls to ensure we can run competitions
  • Team managers and League organisers to help us select teams for competitions
  • Desk management and administration for running Monday young athletes academy
  • Coffee and tea helpers in the clubhouse on training nights
  • “Tuck shop” helpers at home matches
  • Welfare assistants and first aid support
  • Committee members

More details of the roles that need filling can be found here. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to ask a question or to put yourself forward for consideration.

If you're interested in volunteering but not sure what it involves or whether you'd like it, this video, produced by England Athletics might help.  It isn't about C&C but people from clubs like C&C give their reasons for taking up a role at their club. 


Please get in touch, if it inspires you to give it a go.
