Leeds Hyde Park FC is a community sports club which has been running in the Hyde Park (LS6) area for the past three years. We train every Saturday at the Powerleague pitches with 190 kids from the age of 4 up to 15 and currently have 6 teams playing in the Garforth League. We strive to make a noted difference in the local community by allowing children from all walks of life to join and enjoy the game.
LHPFC is primarily volunteer-ran. The majority of our coaches and organisational staff are un-paid and keep the club alive through their hard work and commitment. We are always on the lookout for more student volunteers to help grow our club and keep the dream alive. We currently have several Leeds students working in a variety of roles from coaching to admin, in addition to social media and club management. Everyone is welcome and all skills are desirable. We understand that students lead busy lifestyles and so want our volunteers to work in their own time, and if they cannot commit to helping out one week that is not a problem!
We are endlessly flexible and a great way for anyone to gain some volunteering experience and improve their CV. We can work with you to develop any skills which will make you more employable: from leadership to events planning, we can help you learn or improve any practical skills.
In order to keep the club prospering, we are in need of volunteers to fill some of the roles below. Do not worry if these do not match your skill set as we are happy to have anyone on board!
If you are looking for a worthwhile volunteering experience which will improve your employability, look no further than Leeds Hyde Park FC and get in touch today!
