Without volunteers sport wouldn't happen, and England Athletics want you to have the best experience possible when volunteering in your role. Their very first Team Spirit conference has the aim of supporting you to get the most from your volunteering and will focus around four key areas:
GROW – helping you to learn more about develop opportunities
LEARN – from fellow volunteers and speakers about areas that will help you
SHARE – your successes and guidance to help others
CELEBRATE – an opportunity to come together and be proud of the impact you make
Kerry Marland, Volunteer Manager at England Athletics said: "If you volunteer within our sport you are part of a huge community who make our sport happen and we would love this day to bring together people from all volunteer backgrounds and roles to grow, learn, share and celebrate with each other: coaches, officials, committee members, marshals, leaders, and anyone at all who helps. You all make a different and we'd love you to join us. A huge thank you to our funders too, Spirit of 2012, for making this event possible!"
