Sport Volunteers – Workshops
The sport volunteering program takes the big topic of volunteering and breaks it into six smaller, club-focused, actionable segments. RSV, collaborating with our Member Regional Sport Assemblies will deliver four workshops per region introducing all six volunteering elements along with the club-focused resources and tools available to them.
The four, one-hour workshops will focus on building the capacity and confidence of sports clubs to deliver great volunteer programs. Sports clubs or Local government staff engaging with sports clubs are encouraged to select the date and time of the workshops most suitable to them. Find out more or register here.
Workshop 1 introduces the Sport Volunteers program, the resources available to you and introduces the first actionable segment – ‘Plan’. This segment provides a framework that enables strong volunteer management that is right for your club.
Workshop 2 re-caps the Sport Volunteers program and introduces the second and biggest actionable segment – ‘Recruit’. This segment has two key topic areas, the first of which is creating position descriptions that provide clarity to all. For clubs, the type and size of volunteer roles needed. And for potential volunteers – understanding what is involved. The second topic area is recruitment methods to consider. Some you may know, others which are new to sport but can give your volunteer program a lift.
Workshop 3 introduces the third and fourth actionable segments – ‘Select’ and ‘Guide’. ‘Select’ provides a framework for fair and consistent selection processes that ensure all relevant checks needed are completed. ‘Guide’ encourages you to plan the orientation processes that help create a supportive environment for volunteers.
Workshop 4 introduces the fifth and sixth actionable segments – ‘Encourage’ and ‘Recognise’. ‘Encourage’ gives you strategies and suggestions to keep your volunteers coming back, whilst ‘Recognise’ ensures you meet a key need of volunteers – to feel valued, valuable, and wanted.
