    • Could you help?
    • Do you have a little time to spare?
    • Could you help lead activities for children?
    • Would you like to gain a qualification in coaching 
      sport or leading other activities?

If so, then think about volunteering with Aberdeenshire's Active Schools team.

Active Schools relies heavily on volunteers to assist with and run various clubs around Aberdeenshire. If we want to keep the clubs at minimal cost, or free then it is essential that we have volunteers on board.

Sports and Recreation - children in a group

You don't have to be sporty to lend a hand - just enthusiastic! We are looking for people to help out with a range of activities. From woodland walks to after-school sports clubs - there is something for volunteers of all ages and abilities. The time commitment is up to you and training will be provided.

Why Volunteer?

  • Sense of achievement
  • Use your existing skills and learn new skills valuable in other areas of employment
  • Satisfaction of doing something within your own community
  • Receive training
  • Gain qualifications

To find out how you could benefit from volunteering contact your local Active Schools Coordinator.



  • Are you a qualified coach?
  • Would you like to develop your coaching skills?
  • Do you want to earn some extra money?

With the wide range of activities and programmes being rolled out there are plenty of opportunities for coaches to work with Active Schools.

If you are a coach who feels they have something to offer the Active Schools programme then please contact Brian Mitchell, Active Schools Manager on 01467 534359 or email

Aberdeenshire Active Schools works closely with local sport and recreation clubs to provide children with additional motivation and opportunities to participate in physical activity. These links are essential to the success of Active Schools in providing pathways towards a healthy and active lifestyle. Clubs can benefit greatly from raising their profile in the community, expanding junior membership, sharing resources, gaining access to additional facilities as well as coach and volunteer development.

To find out how your club could work with Active Schools please contact your local Active Schools Coordinator or get in touch with Brian Mitchell, Active Schools Manager.
