Maximising Volunteering in Sport Webinar

Retention and recruitment of volunteers in sport - COVID Recovery

Volunteers are crucial to community club sport.

However, there is little data or research on them, apart from intermittent counts of those who volunteer and some minimal demographic information for those people.

Their motives, priorities and problems are not understood and sport, arguably, does not treat them as the asset they are.

Early evidence from the impact of Covid-19 on sporting activity indicates that sport volunteering will suffer in 2021 and, club sport along with it. However, we do not have a clear understanding of who amongst the volunteers will return, their reasons for returning or not, nor strategies to enhance retention.

The Event

The idea of the event is to review the implications of the existing data about sport volunteers from Australia and NZ and move into a discussion of ideas and strategies for connecting with all possible Victorians who might volunteer in sport.


An email will be sent out with a link to the Zoom webinar a day before the event.
