Clubs who have created a culture of volunteering, year on year are much more likely to be successful, achieve their goals, be more fun and enjoyable to be apart of, have more social benefits and above all have a strong sense of belonging between the club and its participants.
Volunteers contribute to the social and economic value of sport, especially at the community level. Our football club would not be able to run without volunteers who fill many critical roles, including coach, official, manager, administrator, board and committee member.

Approximately 3 million Australians donate their time and energy to community sport and recreation clubs. The estimated value of labour input by sport sector volunteers in Australia is $4 billion per year.
While volunteering provides substantial benefits to society, it also provides significant benefits to the volunteers themselves. The act of volunteering has been linked to positive mental, social, and physical benefits.
