Volunteering

Volunteers are the backbone of our club!

 

The hockey club relies on the efforts of our many amazing volunteers, without whom the club would not function. And so, we encourage every one of our members to get involved.

As well as the hockey related jobs that include:

  • arranging fixtures

  • coordinating umpires

  • registering players

  • managing teams

there are many 'back office' jobs in:

  • finance

  • communications

  • membership

  • fundraising & sponsorship

  • equipment management

  • organising socials, and

  • special projects and events

Volunteer opportunities include jobs with more regular commitment, short term more project-based activities and once-off helping out with events. So there's something to suit everyone!

It's a great way to get to know different people in the club and it's really rewarding. So, if you'd like to help out in the club we'd love to hear from you! 💚
