Volunteer - Walking Football Program
Pines Health and Wellness Services, 336 Marion Road, North Plympton SA 5037

 

About us

 

For 50 years, Southern Cross Care has been providing quality aged care and retirement living services to our community.  We live and breathe our compassionate, capable, collaborative and creative values, and we want people who share these values to join our team.

 

About the role

 

In partnership with Football Federation South Australia (FFSA), we are looking at introducing a walking football program into the community Health & Wellness Centres next year.

 

We are looking for people with administration and experience in football and community sport to join our Community Health & Wellness teams.

 

The ad-hoc role would be part administration and part attending trainings and games with residents.

Some tasks would include:

  • Promoting the program to residents at Community Health and Wellness and signing them up/registering them
  • Calling the walking football participants to ensure they are attending trainings and games, and to coordinate bus pickup and dropoffs
  • Attending walking football training, games and come and try events
  • Assisting the FFSA coaches with set up and pack down
  • Help maintain equipment

 

The program start time is yet to be decided and would be broken down into tasks closer to date.

 

However, the task of promoting, registering and signing people up can begin straight away and will probably be 3-5 hours per week in commitment.

 

This position would best suit those with past experience in soccer or someone that may be looking at being involved in community sport programs on a regular basis, as well as a passion for healthy ageing, clear communication skills, patience and empathy.

 

All volunteers require a police certificate for the purposes of Aged Care.

 

If you are looking for a rewarding voluntary opportunity to help people be more active, encouraging them to join in, and therefore enhancing their quality of life, we would love to hear from you.
