REMEMBER – Warriors is run by VOLUNTEERS, the more help we get, the better the club, so don’t be shy!!
If you have a specific skill/ talent e.g. Keyboard skills/ fund-raising / accounting, or you just fancy getting involved, please do not hesitate to offer your services, either directly to a member of the committee or via the Contact Us page
It is essential that where possible ALL parents or carers volunteer at some stage in their child’s progression through the club. Some people think that they have nothing to offer, or what they do have to offer will not be of any value to the club, when what we require mostly is just someone’s time. All of the tasks for volunteers are relatively simple and there will always be somebody there to show you the ropes and support you for the first couple of times you do the task.
Badge galas require a large numbers of volunteers to function, some of the tasks need some training such as time keepers and officials (courses are run occasionally through the year, look on the website for details if you are interested). Other tasks include :- supplying volunteers with refreshments on poolside, sitting at the door and taking admission fee’s and selling raffle tickets, being a ‘runner’, a steward or a team manager on poolside. If you have a flair on the karaoke then maybe the announcers job would suit you!
One of the first things you can do, in preparation for helping the children on the poolside, is to obtain a DBS certificate (formerly CRB). This can be done by sending your name and email address to the Welfare Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once again the club is run by volunteers, from the management to the poolside, without these dedicated people the club and the events would cease to happen.
GET INVOLVED, HELP THE CLUB TO FUNCTION !!!!
Please find below details of the Volunteer Satisfaction Survey 2016. The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete depending on the level of detail you wish to include within your responses. It will remain open until the 1stDecember.
The more volunteers that complete the survey from your regions and counties, the more representative and comprehensive the data will be. This is being circulated through our normal channels, and has already been sent to the regional office managers and club staff. If you could encourage all volunteers at all levels of the sport (including management boards and committees) to complete, I would be extremely grateful.
As promised, this year you will all receive a breakdown of the relevant results from your specific regions. Information which I’m sure you will find extremely valuable. You are likely to receive this around mid-January once the whole survey has been analysed by the Insight department.
The link to the survey is HERE.
If you would like marketing and communication materials to use to promote this, please feel free to take any wording from the article located on the volunteering hub HERE. If you have any questions at this stage, please do let me know.
