Keeping Your Volunteers Happy

Once you have volunteers working to help your club prosper, there are a number of ways you can help and support these vital cogs in the rugby club machine. 

A volunteer who is happy and feels valued is more likely to stay and put their all into the role and there are a number of ways that you can develop the volunteer workforce at your disposal.

It is a good idea to appoint a Club Volunteer Coordinator (CVC), someone who is dedicated to managing the volunteers.  Having a player or committee member with specific responsibility for supporting volunteers can promote effective use of the workforce.

For more information about training opportunities for your volunteers get in touch with the volunteering team via the RFU's contact us page.
