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 the roles available at Sports Plus 2015, but this is subject to change for Sports Plus 2016.

Christians in Sport take seriously the responsibility to the young people in their care. All leaders will be required to undergo a Criminal Records Check and attend compulsory Safeguarding training before joining the team.
