Game Changers - Sport, Leadership + Volunteering

Game Changers

Game Changers is the University of Bristol's sports leadership and volunteering programme. It provides students with online and in-person training and qualifications to volunteer in sport and physical activity in a range of areas including coaching, officiating and community outreach.

Programme overview

The programme runs continously throughout the year to fit flexibly around student's studies. It is structured as follows:

  • Step one - Introduction and information about the programme.
  • Step two - Training workshops, including working with disadvantaged groups, events management, coaching qualifications and much more.
  • Step three - 10 hours of volunteering.
  • You are changing the game!

A list of training and volunteering opportunities offered with our partners will be available in due course.  Alternatively, students can complete a formal qualification (e.g. Level 1 Badminton Coaching) in a chosen area which will be partly reimbursed after completing the programme.

Game Changers impacted my year in the best way possible and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the programme to anyone who wants more out of their time at university.
