Description

As a Volunteer Coach with KEEN London you will be providing one-to-one support for our athletes. Your role is:
• To support the athlete in accessing the fun and games on offer at the session and adapting the activity to meet their needs. Some of our athletes are very physically able but may need regularly reminding of the rules or instructions, or might just need someone to keep them focused on the task. Others may have a good understanding of the rules and instructions but need extra support with coordination e.g. rolling the ball instead of throwing it.
• To encourage the athletes and give them lots of praise. At KEEN we want to motivate all of our athletes and help them to achieve their full potential. Individual support means that every athlete can get the focus and attention they need to build their self-esteem, confidence and appreciation of physical activity.
• To get moving. You don't need to be an Olympian or even a member of a gym! We want to show all of our athletes that you can have a great time being physically active, regardless of your level of ability.
• To have fun! Our athletes love working with energetic and enthusiastic people and we will ensure that all of your effort and hard work will be rewarded with a great time.
We offer regular social events for volunteers, and our weekly debriefing sessions over food and drinks are a great way to meet new friends. Volunteers are also regularly offered opportunities to attend extension training in areas such as Autism Awareness, Makaton, Behaviour Management and Session Leading. We recognise our long term volunteers with t-shirts and badges, as well as advance sign-ups for popular events.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving/Creativity

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

We offer full training and support, and a range of additional education sessions, including Autism awareness, behaviour management and session leading.
