There’s a lot of work that goes into running a grassroots football club and it is all done by volunteers: players need to be recruited; teams need to be registered; fees need to be collected; new coaches and officials need to be trained and certified; existing Club officials need to update their safeguarding and first aid certification; pitches need to be booked; team managers and coaches need to manage their players and prepare them to play on match day; lines need to be painted; kit and equipment needs to be bought and distributed; and the bills need to be paid.

Blewbury Amazons was founded in 2021 with a handful of teams, and in a few short years has grown into a club with 15 teams and around 200 girls currently registered with us.  However, the club is still largely run by a small group of dedicated individuals, who are now overstretched and urgently need your help to keep the club running.  We need parents not just to support their own children, but also to help their child’s team, or the club, in some way.


Your Team Needs You!
Team Managers and Coaches have a lot to think about and will always appreciate some help in fulfilling the routine tasks involved in running the team, particularly on match day.  An extra pair of hands lightens the load and allows the Team Manager / Coach to focus their attention on the Players.

It is really helpful when parents:

  • Volunteer for a shift on the tuckshop (full instructions are in the tuck shop to make this easy for you)

  • Set up / put away the nets, corner flags and respect barrier

  • Pick up any litter left behind

  • Make sure kids are dressed appropriately for the weather

 Your Club Needs You!
Now that the Club has expanded to have teams at every age group from U7-U15, we feel confident that there are enough parents within the Club that can help us distribute the administrative load more evenly and fairly.   We are looking to fill a number of key administrative roles that will help streamline some processes and take the burden from Committee members that are already busy with Coaching and other Club roles.  So, if you’d like to help, we’d be delighted to welcome you to the team.


All that these roles require is a desire to engage more fully with the running of the Club and its Committee members with no more than 1-2 hours a week expected of your time. Some roles will require considerably less time than this, and some roles will be seasonal - busy in the summer before the season starts but quiet for the rest of the year.  You will have all the support and training you need from our current committee members. ​ Most of these roles can be easily be job-shared amongst several people covering different age groups/venues etc.
