Now you have successfully recruited volunteers into your club. The biggest challenge faced by clubs are retaining volunteers.

To successfully retain your volunteers you should consider;

  1. Why do people volunteer? 
  2. What benefits can you offer potential volunteers? 
  3. Provide opportunities for volunteers to change roles. 
  4. Offer flexible volunteering opportunities to suite people’s availability, likes and dislikes.Offer opportunities for skill development, i.e first aid training, injury prevention training, access to coaching courses.

And also remember that volunteers want to feel: 

  1. Welcome 
  2. Part of a Team 
  3. Needed 
  4. Useful
