Volunteers are the backbone of grassroots football. Without volunteers' dedication and commitment demonstrated each and every week, clubs and leagues would simply not exist. A football club or league is about far more than just the players.

Devon FA recognises the importance of volunteers in running and developing football at every level. We are committed to supporting all of our volunteers and through our Football Workforce programme we:

•Support and develop existing volunteers
•Recruit more volunteers into football
•Recognise and reward volunteers

Both Clubs and Leagues have a huge number of volunteer roles to fill in order to sustain and develop. A well run organistation will feature important backroom staff including secretaries, welfare officers and fundraisers in addition to first aiders and team coaches. Charter Standard clubs now require a volunteer co-ordinator and it is their role to recruit, reward and support volunteers in their club.

Please visit the various sections under the volunteer heading which should contain everything you need for succeddfull volunteering. Keep up the good work!
