Volunteers play a hugely important role in their clubs, they ensure that clubs up and down the country are open and thriving from the serving in the kitchen, or behind the bar to taking on a senior committee role or ensuring that the pitches are maintained looked after.
Become a volunteer
The life and soul of our clubs: Rugby Union is all about people and without the 1000’s of people who volunteer week in week out the grass roots game would not survive.
Successful rugby clubs are more than just victorious teams on the pitch. Players and coaches are vitally important but so are the many dedicated volunteers who work hard behind the scenes to help the club function.
You don’t have to be a rugby expert to get involved. Whether you’re a current player, someone who has hung up their boots or a person who has never picked up the oval ball, you could be a valued rugby volunteer, with a workforce of 100,000 already situated around the country.
While the benefits of volunteering are specific to each individual, the inclusive environment of a community rugby club is a rewarding place to be for people with differing sets of skills. There are opportunities to get involved for people of all ages, and some of the benefits include:
- Building self-esteem and confidence
- Learning and developing new skills
- Being active and improving health and wellbeing
- Meeting new people and broadening your social network
- Giving something back to the game you love
- Making a difference in the community
- Having fun
This is the game for you, get out of it what you want, play/volunteer your way.
