Is your club in desperate need of more officials? You’re not alone; this is a common problem for many clubs. Being able to recruit enough officials is extremely important for clubs and associations to operate, develop and grow. Research states 80% of all sports officials begin officiating shortly after leaving their sport as a participant or started officiating while still participating in their sport.
Promote the positive aspects that YOUR club or organisation offers to volunteers:
- Enjoyment & fun
- For money/cash
- Keep fit
- To challenge yourself
- To stay involved in the game
- Help support and develop your sport and competition
- To help out the team and sport
- Help out your child’s sport and team
- Comradery and friendship
