Today 12 acts will battle it out in X Factor style auditions at the Sheffield City Hall for a place to perform at the Sainsbury's 2013 School Games.
Sainsbury's 2013 School Games
The Sainsbury's 2013 School Games is taking place in Sheffield between Thursday 12th and Sunday 15th September 2013 and we are looking for over 400 volunteers to support the delivery of the event. There are a number of volunteering opportunities available, with roles ranging from coordinating volunteers, driving, media and many more!
The location of the event will be held across a number of Sheffield venues. Volunteers will be required to support each day of the event. Shift times for each day will be confirmed in June 2013.
12 National Governing Bodies of Sport are involved in the event, these are: Athletics, Badminton, Cycling, Fencing, Gymnastics, Hockey, Judo, Rugby Sevens, Swimming, Table Tennis, Volleyball and Wheelchair Basketball.
We project that circa 1600 athletes will participate in this event across the 12 sports. This is a unique opportunity to support the delivery of an event this size.
We are looking for friendly, outgoing and competent volunteers to fulfil a variety of roles. Volunteers will be acting as representatives for the event therefore the right attitude is essential. No specific experience is required and briefings and training will take place prior to the event to ensure that you are fully prepared for your role and responsibilities.
