The Leicester Cobras club is a registered charity and is managed, organised and run by volunteers who are mostly team members. So a lot of the players have dual roles in running the club as well as playing wheelchair basketball. All of the club members involved do this on a voluntary basis, which means that they don’t get paid for the work they put in.
There are many roles to running a club like the Cobras and we are always looking for people who are willing to volunteer their time to help. If you would like to volunteer please make contact with us from the information on the Contact the Cobras page.
Below is a list of some of the roles and some of the people who are contributing to the running of the Cobras this season (2015/16 season). Thank you to everyone that has supported the Cobras and apologies if I have missed anyone off. The club couldn’t run with out you.
