The future of sport volunteering

The Sport Volunteer Coalition has developed a four-year Action Plan, to enable more Australians to volunteer in sport and enhance the sport volunteering experience. The ASC leads the implementation of the Action Plan, with the Sport Volunteer Coalition members supporting the delivery across four strategic themes – Celebrate, Empower, Reimagine and Innovate.

Through this Action Plan, the ASC and Sport Volunteer Coalition will showcase the health and wellbeing benefits of volunteering in sport for individuals and communities. The ASC invites organisations from across the sport sector to read and digest the Action Plan, and reach out regarding opportunities to work together to continue to enhance the volunteer experience and encourage new volunteers to join their sport.

Putting people first is central to this new approach to sport volunteering – this vision has been central to the plan design and will remain a key focus over the next 4 years

The Sport Volunteer Coalition Action Plan was officially launched on Saturday 3 September 2022 by Minister for Sport, The Hon Anika Wells and ASC CEO, Kieren Perkins OAM.

Since coming together in early 2022, the Sport Volunteer Coalition have been working hard to understand how to ensure Australia’s 2.9 million sport volunteers receive the recognition they deserve and raise awareness of the role they play.
