About Volunteering

Volunteers are the backbone of AFL Community Clubs. Volunteers don’t get paid – not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.

Volunteering within a football club or umpiring group gives you the chance to meet new people and become engaged with the community.

Clubs are always looking for volunteers to assist them and there are endless roles that can be filled. Some examples of volunteer roles are:

  • Boundary umpires
  • Goal umpires
  • Runner
  • Time keeper
  • Coach
  • Canteen operator
  • Functions and event co-ordinator
  • Registrar

If you have a volunteer within your community club who you believe deserves more recognition, why not submit them for a Volunteer Award. You can find out more about Volunteer recognition here. Or if you need some assistance on how to Recruit a Volunteer, click here.
