OUR TEAM MAKES IT HAPPEN
VOLUNTEERS - APPLY TODAY!
WHAT ROLE DO VOLUNTEERS PLAY?
“Without volunteers, the players would be turning up and there’d be no drink bottles, no clean guernseys, the padding wouldn’t be around the posts, the umpires wouldn’t be organised, the coaches’ boxes wouldn’t be ready, the canteen wouldn’t have any food. It’s all volunteers, and players in most clubs probably don’t realise how important the volunteers are. Players think they just turn up, put a jumper on and it all happens like magic. But it’s actually lots and lots of people doing things in their own time.”
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE ANYONE WANTING TO VOLUNTEER?
“The best thing to say to someone is “Come down and ask if you can join in and help.” All footy clubs will say there’s always a little job that you can help out with. That’s a really good way to get into it, just by being there, saying “G’day”, watching and supporting. Someone will come up to you and say “Can you give us a hand with this?”, and you’re in. That’s a really easy way, just be there supporting the game and being available.”
