Twickenham Cygnets FC relies on a dedicated group of volunteers to help keep the club a safe, welcoming, fun and supportive environment for all our players and visitors. If you'd like to be involved, please see our list of current vacancies and please get in touch to find out more. Thank you for your support.
1. Team Leads
Take charge of a team on match days and reveal your inner Mourinho. A basic knowledge of football would be helpful but not necessary. Training will be provided.
Sunday mornings. Ideally a shared role with other parents.
Currently recruiting for next season's U8s from September (Purples, Blues, Whites).
3. Welfare Officers
Safeguarding our players and supporting their welfare will always be our priority and every age group will have their own dedicated Welfare Officer. We are now looking to appoint a dedicated Welfare Officer for our U8 age group but welcome interest from parents and carers across all age groups in supporting the club's welfare team.
Those interested, will be required to complete a Safeguarding Children and Welfare Officer Course (link below) which the club will arrange on your behalf.
As a girls only club, we are particularly keen to hear from our female members for these important roles.
5. Results Secretary
Our Results Secretary will be responsible for collecting the results of each game on a Sunday from our Team Leads and inputting these into The Surrey FA website by midnight on the day of the game.
Approx. 1 to 2 hours every Sunday evening.
7. Match Day Officials
With a growing number of teams and matches each Sunday, we are always looking for support on match days. Specifically match day referees across all our age groups and assistant referees from U12 and above.
Training will be provided for those interested.
Approx. 1 hour every Sunday morning.
2. Coaching Opportunities
Interested in becoming a coach? We are always keen for more people to join our team of dedicated coaches and help our players continued development. Experience a taste of what you will learn with The FA's FREE Playmaker course (link below).
Once this has been completed online and you're keen to continue, the club will support you achieve your Level 1 - Introduction to Coaching Football qualification.
As a girls only club, we are on a mission to increase the number of female coaches in the sport so priority will be given to this group.
4. Fixture Secretary
As the club continues to grow, we are now looking to appoint a fixture secretary to help plan match times, pitch availability with our Team Leads and communicate details to our visiting teams. The role applies to home games only.
Approx. 1 to 2 hours each Sunday evening.
6. First Aid Officers
As part of our commitment to player welfare, each team will require 3 First Aid officers ensuring sufficient cover during training and matches. We are fortunate to have a large number of parents who have completed the Introduction to First Aid in Football course but are always keen to add to this group as new players join the club.
The course can be completed online in approx. 2 hours (link below) and this will be funded by the club.
