“The volunteers in local sports club are often unsung heroes who freely give their rime – literally hundreds of hours every year – doing things for young people and connecting with them in a way that many official bodies never achieve.” Lord Sebastian Coe
92% of sports clubs in Northern Ireland report that they simply couldn’t operate without their volunteers.
A clubs volunteers and coaches are perhaps the clubs most valuable resource. With this in mind it is essential that we manage and support volunteers effectively including how we recruit, reward, recognise, development and retain our sports club volunteers.
