Game Changers

Becoming involved in sport as a volunteer is fun, rewarding and professionally useful. It offers transferable skills, experiences you can talk about, and an involvement in benefitting others which can be life-changing for them – and for you.

Game Changers

Game Changers is a unique and award-winning programme that provides training, leadership and volunteering opportunities for students that are passionate about sport, exercise and generally being active! Benefits to you include: 

  • The chance to meet a like-minded positive group of students
  • Training workshops based on vital skills such as teamwork, communication and organisation
  • Wide range of experiences on offer including sports coaching, event management and community engagement
  • Dedicated staff members and student leaders who will help you gain confidence and self-awareness
  • Open to all students regardless of any previous experience or sporting ability

Students pay a one-off £30.00 registration fee upon joining the programme which contributes to the costs of your programme t-shirt and training.

Candidates will then enrol in our mandatory training modules which are fun and practical and will give you the chance to get to know us and other student leaders.

Bristol Plus Awards

Completing the minimal requirements of our Game Changers programme will give you exactly the experiences you need to achieve the Bristol Plus Award, which is increasingly recognised by many employers through the University Career Service.

Everything about volunteering this year was enjoyable; the sports I helped coach, the people I met who were so positive and the tutors that assisted me in doing so. The whole group atmosphere contributed to a fun filled experience and was just the family I was looking for.
