Sports Plus 2017 Leaders
Sports Plus is a week of specialist sports coaching and team competitions for young people who are serious about sport and play regularly in a club or team. Sports Plus is the perfect way for young people to improve in their sport, while exploring more about the Christian faith and what it means to be a Christian sports player. To make Sports Plus happen we need over 400 Coaches, Team Leaders, Support Staff and Medical Staff.
Sports Plus leaders must first and foremost have a passion to follow Jesus and are willing to serve God, the gospel, the young people and each other. There are many different roles in which you could serve at Sports Plus and this Leaders' Roles document gives an overview of each role.
Leaders must be 18 years old but the Trainees' programme is for those who have finished their final year of school. For more information on this programme check out the Trainees' page.
