Recruiting Volunteers

Volunteers are a vital part of sport.  We all know that and you may well be a volunteer yourself.  As you will be aware, there are countless theoretical examples of what we should and should not do to get volunteers in our sporting clubs.

Here at Sport NSW, we've widely researched from the best in Australia to the best around the world to come up with 50 ideas that you can use to recruit volunteers.  We've collated all the ideas and have used bullet points so it's easy to read.

But to make it more 'realistic', we asked the army of real live volunteers out there.  The response was great and is a representation from a range of sports, clubs and ages of volunteers.  You should be able to pick up some great innovative ideas to help with your club.

Keeping Volunteers

So now if you've used our "recruiting volunteers" resource, you may well have more people wanting to help.  It's true that in most cases, the volunteer usually stays as long as their son/daughter/family member is involved.  There is also evidence however, that people whose family have volunteered, tend to volunteer themselves as adults...

Once you've got someone keen in your club, it's worth spending a bit of time trying to keep them.  This resource will give you some great ideas from research and real people on how to keep your volunteers around.

Rewarding Volunteers

Volunteers are vital for our clubs.  Many people give up hours and hours of their time to help run the local club so that other people can just turn up and play.  Most State Sporting Organisations run Volunteer recognition award ceremonies so make sure that you are aware of what they do.

This resource is a collection of great ideas from a variety of sources about how to reward your volunteers.  Often it's as simple as a 'thank you' but here are some other ways.
