It's important to continually celebrate, thank and recognise the significant contribution the almost 3 million sport volunteers make across Australia.
Volunteering in sport is incredibly positive, enjoyable and rewarding. There are so many benefits; you can feel good, make new friends, learn new skills all whilst having fun.
Sport volunteering is for everyone, plus you can volunteer for something that suits your individual needs, interests and availability.
Opportunities to volunteer in sport is available across a wide variety of roles and tasks. Some include coaching, fundraising managers, marshals, car park attendants, event organisers, team uniform managers, treasurers and board members.
Volunteering is the heart of our sport sector.
