At Active Lincolnshire we recognise the essential role that volunteers play to make sport happen across the county.
Without the time, energy and commitment given by assistants, coaches, officials, parents, captains, helpers and volunteers, many sporting events clubs, team sport sessions and coaching sessions would not be able to run. At the 2014 Hockey World Cup, 1183 volunteers were out in force (and they ranged in age from 16 to nearly 80!
Volunteers play a huge role in sport and physical activity, without them clubs, teams and sessions across Lincolnshire would not happen.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has volunteered with us. Your commitment and contribution as a volunteer really makes a difference to us and to Lincolnshire.

Three ways that Volunteers Help to get Lincolnshire Active:
- LEAD – people who lead activity, training or competition e.g. referees, time keepers or coaches.
- SUPPORT – people who support others to be physically active e.g. encouraging your friend to try a new sport or activity.
- HELP – people who help within clubs, events and groups e.g. fundraising, ground maintenance or photography
