Football in Jersey couldn't survive without its volunteer workforce. Volunteers are the backbone of grassroots football and clubs are about more than just the players on the pitch.

The Jersey FA recognises the value of volunteers in running and developing football at every level, currently there are over 400+ volunteers supporting and providing football in the island.

Our key areas of focus are:

  • Support and develop existing volunteers
  • Recruit more volunteers into football
  • Recognise and reward volunteers
  • Areas where you can volunteer

Clubs today require a varied number of volunteers to fulfill important roles to help them operate and develop. All FA Charter Standard clubs should have a volunteer coordinator and it is their role to recruit, reward and support volunteers in their club. There should be no barriers to being involved and some roles can be undertaken without even leaving the house.

There are many benefits to getting involved in football as a volunteer. These include:

  • Learning new skills
  • Helping others and giving something back into sport
  • Becoming part of a team and meeting new people
  • To do something different to the day job
  • To build self-confidence

Whatever your involvement in football, you have a responsibility to make our game as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone.

This is particularly true if your role as a volunteer involves working or being with children and young people under the age of 18.
