Volunteerism in Sport
Volunteers are the heartbeat of amateur sport in British Columbia. In many different roles and capacities, volunteers support, enable, inspire, and govern so that sport is safe, welcoming, and inclusive.
How do volunteers make sport better?
As coaches, officials, or supporters, volunteers are often front-and-center during play. But volunteers also enable sport from behind the scenes, whether it’s through fundraising, operations and administrative support, or on governing boards.
Volunteers share their time, skills, and passion — without financial compensation — to do whatever is needed to help make sport better.

Volunteers organize everything from local tournaments to major competitions. They assist in registration, logistics, scheduling, facility management, and ensure that events run smoothly.
Volunteers are ambassadors for sport, promoting participation and physical activity and inspiring others to get involved. They create a sense of unity and shared enthusiasm for athletics.
Volunteers provide crucial support to athletes during competitions and training. They may assist with equipment setup, transportation, medical services, or simply offering moral support. Their presence and assistance contribute to a positive and inclusive sports environment.
Support for Sport Organizations
Volunteers provide operational and administrative support for sport organizations. Sometimes they are board members whose time and expertise contribute to the sustainability and success of an organization.
The benefits of volunteering vary based on your goals and level of involvement.
No matter what, by volunteering you can enrich your life while making a meaningful contribution to your favourite sport, your community, and the province.
