Volunteerism is used by Brighton Bulldogs to increase the number of members involved in the club. Volunteers keep both operating costs and registration fees low. Volunteering also brings people with different skills together, to build an even stronger club.

The club requires all member registrations to provide 10 hours of volunteer time to assist the running of the club. Alternatively, members can pay a $100 contribution in lieu of the 10 hours.

The volunteer 10 hours (or $100) are per member registration, e.g., a family registration with more than one player is not required to provide 10 hours (or $100) per player.

How volunteering works

Because we all have more than one thing to do, volunteering is flexible

It is important to share the work involved in running our club.  To do this, volunteering cannot be ad hoc and requires a commitment from everyone. With every member completing an essential job, we ensure our club has the volunteers it needs.

There is no restriction on the number of hours volunteers contribute with many coaches and committee members exceeding 10 hours every week.  However, the minimum contribution is 10 hours across the season.  This is fewer than the number of weeks in the season.  We also require each registration to have completed 50% of their volunteer hours by the half way point in the season, which is the June holidays.

Volunteering makes a huge difference to our club.

Please note that only the team coaches and team managers officially recorded as such by the Club qualify for volunteer hours. Helping out at your sons/daughters training does not meet the criteria for volunteer hours. It's generally expected that the coach will need parental assistance from time to time.
