The aim of the Sports buddy Scheme is to provide non-disabled and disabled students who find it difficult to make friends and access sport with the opportunity to get involved, get fit and have some fun.

Your role as a sports buddy will involve helping to get students engaged in sport and recreational activities - helping to make a real difference to their University experience.

You will also be required to complete the Sports Leaders Level 2 course, as part of your training (19th and 20th November) at David Ross Sports Village. There will also be opportunities to complete coaching and other developmental courses, on request.

We will be looking at a commitment of between two to three hours per week and will need each buddy to complete and submit a monthly feedback form.

1) Click on the 'Register Your Interest' button to contact the SVC for more details

2) We will give you the contact details to email the Disability Sports Officer for an application form

3) They will invite you in for an informal meeting to discuss the role and invite you along to the training session

4) After the training session you will be paired up with your Buddy to start volunteering!

The Any Buddy Scheme volunteering role is part of the Nottingham Advantage Award and you can choose to join this as part of the volunteering role.
