In your College/Uni

There are a whole variety of ways to get active in your college or university and Get Berkshire Active can support you;

Volunteering

Get Berkshire Active is calling for recruits to join its team of volunteers to be called Team Berkshire.

Get Berkshire Active is seeking volunteers to support sport/physical activity events happening throughout the year. These events are either directly supported by our organisation or are being delivered by our partners and involve a variety of sports, communities and locations.

These events vary from district school sport competitions and small community events to national championships and half marathons attracting over 15,000 runners.

You don’t need to be sporty to get involved; typical volunteer roles require enthusiastic, friendly and motivating individuals who possess a range of skills in areas including communication, leadership and organisation
