Bristol and West AC awarded Game Changers funding for 2019.

Are you 14-25 and keen to support your club?

Team Spirit Game Changers is an England Athletics (EA) scheme to help clubs increase the volunteering contribution of 14-25 year olds and give the individual rewarding life experiences.

At Bristol and West AC, we will run our scheme from January to October – allowing flexibility for individuals to pick areas in which they would particularly like to volunteer. These include officiating, coaching and team management, as well as more general support.  We will make sure any Game Changers activities fit in with training and competition.

The funding provided by EA will allow us to run team-building events, as well as providing formal training along with support from the club members.  EA have a great rewards scheme, so keen volunteers can look forward to receiving Game Changers merchandise as they rack up hours of support for the club – from t-shirts to rucksacks and hoodies!

The scheme is suitable for accreditation with other organisations such as the Duke of Edinburgh scheme and volunteer programmes organised by schools, Scouts and Guides.

Nicky Bowell is leading the activity on behalf of the club and is actively looking for volunteers to get going in January. If you are interested or want to find out more, get in touch soon: bowelltom@gmail.com
