Club volunteers are often the thankless heroes of community sport, providing hours of work for the ‘love of the game’ where the reward for them is on the field, track or court rather than off it.

This Sports Community Volunteer Webinar Series will take you through the challenges of attracting volunteers to community sport and developing strategies for recruitment and retention moving forward.

Our expert team have spent hundreds of hours with successful community sports organisations to get the key insights into what works best for them and our webinar series will allow you to retain all the knowledge our team has gathered in the field.

The webinar is interactive and will allow you to ask the questions you need answered from our experts and peers.

In this series, each session will cover the following:

  • Leadership + Culture = Success
  • The facts around volunteering
  • Barriers to volunteering
  • Why set goals?
  • The importance of understanding the operational tasks of your club

    What will you take away from the webinar

    “The whole team at Sports Community has been great to work with. They are always positive and quick to reply. One-hour webinars every couple of weeks are perfect as they don’t take too much time out of your busy work schedule. Presenters of the webinars make potential complex issues quite simple and the recordings of the webinars are a great idea. They have been helpful a few times when I have gone back and reviewed some of the content.”
