Sport and recreation
More Australians volunteer through sporting clubs than any other type of organisation.
Parents who join in when their children are young often find their involvement with sporting clubs becomes an important part of their life.
Volunteers do everything from coaching and umpiring to running the BBQ, getting teams to matches and games, ordering uniforms and bookkeeping.
Visit the Office of Sport sport and recreation website for tools to help run a club. Visit your local club, or check the Office of Sport website for links and contact details for over 70 independent sporting peak bodies.
