Volunteers fulfil vital roles both on and off the field of play to ensure a safe, well organised and fun environment in which our athletes can train, compete and socialise.

Volunteer roles include sports coach, driver, steering group/committee member, PR (photography), fundraising, general event support, family support, volunteer co-ordination and more. Whatever the role, each and every volunteer makes a significant contribution, the combined impact of which truly changes lives.

Volunteering is a way of making new friends, learning new skills, facing new challenges and participating in many new and diverse experiences. These experiences can be very individual or shared and are often quite unique.
