About the Opportunity
Ripples Special Olympics Club is a multi-sports club that is currently recruiting volunteers to fill a number of general roles on a Wednesday evening from 5:30pm to 6:30pm in Cascades Leisure Centre, Friday evening from 5:30pm to 7pm in Craigavon Leisure Centre and/or on a Saturday morning from 10:15am to 11:45am in Centrepoint.

A general volunteer role will cover a number of tasks including: equipment set up and tear down; registration of athletes and volunteers; inducting new volunteers; supervision of athletes during activities; and serving refreshments. Therefore, no previous experience is necessary.

In return, volunteers can expect to gain a great deal of personal satisfaction from working with a special group of people. There will also be opportunities for personal development through training courses such as first aid, safeguarding training and sports coaching qualifications. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to attend national and international events as a Special Olympics volunteer.

In the Ulster Region, we have 64 community sports clubs, special schools, adult centres and services providing weekly training sessions to over 2000 athletes.

Special Olympics Ulster is offering you the chance to make a real difference to the lives of our athletes by becoming one of the team.
