Volunteers affect the club’s culture and add character and feeling to a club. However, not all volunteers uphold the values of the club. You hear stories of volunteers who are hard to get along with, make sexist, racist or other demeaning comments and generally make others feel uneasy.
But we also hear stories of volunteers who value teamwork, treat people with respect and openness and enjoy the company of others. It’s your choice.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of the club. It’s what gives community sport meaning.
