Sport volunteer placements
Sports volunteer placements provide an excellent opportunity to develop your skills. Placements are available in a range of sports within the local area. You can commit to as many or as few sessions as you would like to, timings are flexible and will fit around your existing commitments.
Volunteer placements enables students who have received funding from the Sport Volunteering Programme to 'pay back' their volunteer hours.
Bristol Penguin Olympic Swimming Club (BPOSC) is a community-based swimming club. There are 90 children in swimming lessons and 300 swimmers in the competitive and club squads. There are swimmers of all ages and abilities, ranging from stage 7 swimmers right through to regional level and masters swimmers. BPOSC compete in local leagues as well as county, district and open competitions.
The volunteering would involve helping out with the teaching or coaching and requires no experience, as there are fully qualified volunteers to provide support and guidance.
Students and staff who volunteer for six months would be able to gain 50% funding from BPOSC to attend an ASA level 1 swimming teaching/coaching course (with the other 50% funded through the Sport Volunteering Programme). Anyone who volunteers on a weekly basis would be able to swim with BPOSC for a reduced fee.
Training times and locations
BPOSC train at a variety of sites across the city and volunteers can choose a suitable session to volunteer at. Please see the Penguins website for full details of training locations and times.
