Become a Volunteer.

You don’t have to be a basketball expert to volunteer in basketball. Whatever your motivation and commitment level you will be valued. Without this involvement, basketball wouldn’t be able to survive!

If you are thinking of volunteering, ask for a role that fits with your time, needs and aspirations – perhaps you can team up with someone else to carry out a specific task? Perhaps you will need some training or mentoring or a formal accreditation or some friendly guidance – do ask.

If you are an existing volunteer and feel like you are doing too much or would like a change and would like to do something different, be sure to ask for help – perhaps you can mentor someone new who can carry out some of your duties/tasks? It is likely to be better that you continue to help and you do something that fits with your needs and desires than you leave the club altogether because it is too much or you no longer enjoy it.

All teams need coaches, referees and officials, to find out more about becoming a coach or an official head to our coaching and officiating sections.

The benefits of volunteering mean different things to different people; here are some:

  • Increased confidence
  • Meeting new people and making new friends
  • Improved organisational skills
  • Boosting your CV
  • Giving something back
  • Doing something different to the day job
  • Improved career options and opportunities
  • Opportunity to gain experience in a number of different roles
  • Development of transferable skills and knowledge
  • Taking on new challenges in a safe environment and the opportunity to move outside your comfort zone
  • Being active and improving your health and wellbeing
  • Having fun!

If you are a club or organisation looking for volunteers you should look to follow safe recruitment of staff and volunteers. This guidance is set out by the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) and can be found here
