Volunteering

We're always on the lookout for volunteers to get involved in coaching and the delivery of the numerous aspects of our work including:

- AM Soccer Club (including team football)

- AM Soccer Tots & Mini Tots

- AM Soccer After Schools

- AM Special Needs

- AM Small Communities

- AM Seniors

 

Volunteers massively contribute to all aspects and success of the charity’s work and we're proud to support them. Upon signing up, our volunteers can expect to receive:

- Coaching of the AM Soccer curriculum

- Video analyst training

- Mental Health Education and training

- Diversity and equality education and training

- SFA Levels 1.1, 1.2 & 1.3 paid for by the club (based on number of hours volunteered)

 

Outside of the developmental programme, volunteers can expect to receive:

- AMS branded coaching kit

- Opportunities to progress to paid work with the club

 

Several volunteers of ours have progressed either into paid coaching roles with the organisation or elsewhere, using their experiences gained with AMS to further their careers. This, of course, includes our very own Austin MacPhee alongside the likes of Emily Shaw (FIFA Member Associations Director) and Jack Wilson who has progressed into full-time video analyst full with Heart of Midlothian and Northern Ireland.

 

If you have any questions about volunteering with the club, please email andrewjenkin@amsoccerclub.org.
