VOLUNTEERS - Get Involved!

We all have something to give!

Help make a difference...

Our Club is volunteer led, and we are always looking for new people to join and assist. The success of the club today and in the future relies on the goodwill of members and the Community to contribute to the Club.

Each member's Parent / Guardian is kindly requested to contribute a minimum of 5 hours per season to the Club

Volunteering brings many benefits to our young players and also to you. A sense of achievement, developing your skills and increasing your abilities and confidence as well as making a valuable contribution to the wider Dalkeith community.

The club follows a Volunteer policy based on the Scottish Government's Volunteer Strategy which includes welcoming and valuing our volunteers, providing support, and giving volunteers experiences which match their talents and lifestyles.
