O2 Touch Rugby Opportunities

O2 Touch is a fun and friendly environment for both men and women of all abilities to get involved in touch rugby.  It’s year-round and encourages people to try a minimal contact, inclusive version of the game. It inspires former players to return to a sport they love as well as attracting new people to the game. With an emphasis on social fitness, music and pitch-up-and-play activity O2 Touch breaks down barriers to participation and is strengthening our clubs by growing playing opportunities in local communities. The roles are unpaid, but O2 provide a number of benefits including prizes and experiences.

O2 Touch Rugby Operators

The Operator is the lead contact for O2 Touch at the centre and is responsible for running the sessions.

Responsibilities may include but are not limited to:

  • Building session plans
  • Running sessions
  • Sourcing facilities
  • Booking training courses
  • Arranging fixtures

The Operator does not need a coaching qualification to run the sessions, but needs to attend one of our O2 Touch regional training sessions.

O2 Touch Ambassadors

The Ambassador’s role is primarily a marketing one, driving participation at the centre by promoting O2 Touch in the local community. As Ambassadors tend to recruit players mainly from their own demographic, the Ambassador must be part of our primary target audience (16-30 years old).

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Running O2 Touch social media at the centre
  • Taking videos / photos during the session and tagging all their players
  • Getting the O2 Touch Centre featured in local media
  • Organising social events
  • Supporting the Operator by reporting on attendance using the O2 Touch app.

Please note that these roles are not mutually exclusive and volunteers can swap responsibilities.

Ultimately, the volunteer team as a whole has to deliver the sessions, promote the sessions and report using the O2 Touch website and app.
