Dates for your Diary
Our event opportunities tend to come in seasonal groups, here are some to look out for. Recruitment forms & more information will be sent out at least a month in advance of each, if you have registered for the Athletics NI Volunteer Squad but aren't receiving emails, please get in touch as soon as possible and we will look in to it for you.

We're pretty tightly packed in to the Athletics NI Office, so we don't generally have enough room to accommodate office-based volunteering.
However running up to some of our bigger events, there is often a few days pre-event organisation that we need a hand with. These tasks will always be included on the event sign-up, so don't worry if you can't make the actual event.
Please send any queries to Jenni firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 028 9060 2707
We look forward to meeting you!
