Volunteering is an incredibly positive, enjoyable and rewarding way to be involved in sport.
Sport volunteering is for everyone and is linked to a wide range of health, social and community benefits. Sport provides opportunities to volunteer for something that suits your individual needs, interests, and availability across a breadth of roles and tasks.
With an estimated 2.9 million Australians volunteering in sport annually, volunteers are the heart of our sport sector and are respected and recognised as a critical role in the delivery of sport in Australia.
The Australian Sports Commission (ASC) is committed to supporting the sector to enable more people to volunteer in sport and to enhance the sport volunteering experience through a reimagined vision for the future of sport volunteering (the Vision).
To deliver the Vision, the ASC is working in collaboration with partners from across sport and the broader community to better understand the challenges faced by, and opportunities available for, volunteers and organisations within the sport sector.
Key documents guiding the implementation of the Vision for the ASC and broader sector are:
"People from all walks of life see and realise opportunities to contribute to individual, club and community goals in a way that suits them"
The Future of Sport Volunteering Insights Report
The Insights Report was used to assist the ASC in identifying the Vision. This report also provides guidance for organisations to develop their own volunteer plans.
Sport Volunteering National Plan
The National Plan outlines the role of the ASC in leading and activating the sport sector to deliver the Vision.
Sport Volunteer Action Plan
As part of the National Plan, the Sport Volunteer Coalition was formed to provide expert advice and guidance in the development of a four-year action plan.
The implementation and evaluation of deliverables outlined in the Plan will deliver the Vision.
