Hi everyone, hope you are well and looking forward to getting back to rugby.
There is now a page on the website (from the Volunteers Menu) Parent & Volunteer Resources – Longton Rugby Club
that brings together all the documents, policies, links to external resources etc. that are necessary for volunteers to enable their role and a lot of which should be of interest to parents/carers. It should also help to spread the responsibility for the administration of the ever growing mini/junior section.
You do not need to read everything, there is no exam, but we would encourage everyone to familiarise themselves with the information available which will hopefully also improve your experience of our club.
We would also encourage parents/carers to have a look at the volunteer roles, in particular Team Manager, Coach, First Aider and Parent Liaison Officer. Most groups have some people in these roles but we are always looking for more as the more people we have helping out the easier the roles become. We are also looking to make the groups more autonomous moving away from central administrative roles and therefore again the more volunteers we have the easier this becomes. If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org
There are also one or two opportunities for parents/volunteers to join the Mini/Junior Committee. This is great opportunity to not only volunteer to help run a group and/or the section but have a direct influence on the path the section is taking. The committee is relatively small and made up of extremely competent people who also have other voluntary roles. Again as the section grows an addition of one or two people would make a huge difference to the workload and decision making process. If you are interested please email email@example.com
