Volunteers

Our clubs and leagues are at the heart of people’s experience of playing baseball and softball – coaching, facilities and competition are all centred around them. Over 10 million adults in England play sport in a club or league environment – and the roles performed by volunteers are vital to the success of our clubs and our sports.  It is in the interest of our sports to ensure that volunteers are supported in their roles and given the recognition and respect their commitment deserves.

Through the Development Charter resources we will provide support and guidance to volunteers and to the clubs, teams, leagues and organisations in which they volunteer. Whether it is an example role description you are after, tips on recruiting or keeping volunteers, or ways of developing them our relationship managers are happy to advise.

Why pitch in and volunteer?

Volunteering can be a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, gain valuable experience, and hopefully have fun along the way!  There are lots of benefits to pitching in:

  • Building self-esteem and confidence
  • Learning and developing new skills such as leadership, communication and teamwork
  • Getting great work experience and boosting your CV
  • Being active and improving your health and well-being
  • Meeting new people and broadening your social network
  • Making a difference and putting something back into the community in which you live, work or study
  • Having fun!

The opportunities to get involved are many and varied. There could be opportunities in your local club or league, or through organising baseball or softball where you work or study. Get in touch with your region’s relationship manager for ideas and introductions if you are keen to get involved.
