Free Volunteer Management in Sport Toolkit
Given that an active volunteer workforce is critical to Australian sport, it is perhaps surprising that very few sporting organisations have a dedicated focus on volunteer management. Sports volunteers represent the power of volunteering in communities and individual lives.
That’s why Volunteering Victoria has developed a free sports specific Volunteer Management Toolkit to help clubs support their volunteers.
Imagine the cost if we had to pay for services volunteers deliver! Imagine sport without volunteers.
Download your free copy<http://volunteeringvictoria.org.au/volunteering-in-sport/> of Volunteering Victoria’s Volunteer Management in Sport Toolkit – a fully editable Word document with templates to help your club find, develop and support volunteers.
Sport at all levels in Australia is heavily reliant on volunteers for every aspect of its development and delivery.

Ausplay – participation data for the sport sector
The Australian Sport Commission (ASC) recently released the results of the Ausplay survey – a large scale national population tracking survey funded and led by the ASC. This is great news for the sport sector, as there has been a lack of up-to-date national participation data since the release of the ABS Sport and Recreation: A Statistical Overview, Australia in 2012 and the ASC’s Participation in Exercise, Recreation and Sport (ERASS) in 2010.
