Volunteers are the backbone of clubs in the grassroots sporting community and ours is no different.
Our club appreciates and depends on volunteers to assist with the continued running of the club and at all levels of football and netball, working both on and off the field and court.
We are fortunate to have hard working and committed volunteers, however, in order to ensure too much isn't left to too few, and everyone has the opportunity to enjoy supporting our players, we are appealing for volunteers to fill specific roles in the club or to register to provide general assistance as required.
Our Volunteer Coordinator, Tim Reed, is responsible for ensuring specific positions are filled and that those people have the resources to fulfil the duties required and feel welcome and supported in doing so.
There are positions descriptions available for for certain roles but if you'd like more information or would like to register your interest please call:
Tim on 0418478566 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
