Volunteers kick off your season


Volunteers are the backbone of grassroots football in sheffield & hallamshire 

A football club is about far more than the players on the pitch and The FA and Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA are committed to supporting the volunteers in club football who make up the backbone of grassroots football. 

We are proud to be able to boast an army of outstanding volunteers, without whom grassroots football in the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA region simply would not be able to function.

A well-run club should feature the backroom staff of a Fixtures Secretary, fundraisers, a Welfare officer and a Chairperson to oversee the club’s constitution, as well as the frontline first aiders to act as physios and team coaches

Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA is committed to ensuring that all volunteers are able to obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to operate a successful grassroots football club and delivers a variety of courses throughout the County FA region which volunteers can attend. 

Get into Volunteering

Without the time and dedication our volunteers demonstrate week in week out, clubs, leagues and football would not exist. 

From club secretaries, welfare officers and coordinators to coaches and club officials, football relies on each and every one of these volunteers to allow it to be successful.

Could you be the next volunteer to help develop the game?

Safeguarding and Welfare


Whatever your involvement in football, you have a responsibility to make our game as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone.

This is particularly true if your role as a volunteer involves working or being with children and young people under the age of 18.

Find out how The FA and the Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA manages safeguarding nationally and locally. You’ll also find detailed information on the game’s safeguarding strategy, and how it applies to you.


Joining the SHCFA Future Stars programme has giving me great experience of so many different areas of football. It has allowed me to meet new people and learn valuable information from them that will hopefully help me progress into a career within the game.
