The UoN Dodgeball club have been running the DiSCO project since 2009 – going in to schools and community groups to teach children, of a wide range of ages and abilities, to play Dodgeball! This encourages children to stay active and also get involved in a new sport.
About your role
This is your chance to get involved with one of the UK's fastest growing sports. We're looking for volunteers to help us run dodgeball sessions in local schools to help promote keeping fit and healthy and to raise the profile of the sport in the local area.
No previous experience of dodgeball is necessary so don't worry if you haven't played before; the Dodgeball Club will provide all the necessary support and training. You just need an enthusiasm for working with children.
1 - 2 hours per week for 6 weeks
