Volunteers are the foundation of grassroots football in Dorset. Without Volunteers who commit endless time and commitment many clubs and leagues across Dorset would not exist. Football within Dorset is more than just the players on the pitch.

Dorset FA recognises the value of volunteers in running and developing football at every level, and Dorset FA are dedicated to support and develop existing volunteers, recruit a more diverse demographic of volunteers and reward those who positively contribute to the game.

Many Clubs and Leagues today require a variety of different volunteer roles to help them successfully operate and deliver grassroots football for all. From chairpersons to welfare officers Dorset FA recognise the importance and value of Volunteers.

There should be no barrier to anyone who would like to volunteer, and Dorset FA are enthusiastic about supporting anyone in finding opportunities within football to not only continue to grow grassroots football but gain key benefits including:

•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
