  • Successful rugby clubs are more than just victorious teams on the pitch. Players and coaches are vitally important but so are the many dedicated volunteers who work hard behind the scenes to help the club function.

    You don’t have to be a rugby expert to get involved. Whether you’re a current player, someone who has hung up their boots or a person who has never picked up the oval ball, you could be a valued rugby volunteer.

  • Volunteers are one of the most valuable assets of a rugby organisation. They offer time, effort and expertise and deserve to be recognised and rewarded for their hard work.

    Rugby Union has a long and proud tradition of thanking volunteers. Encouraging these traditions at clubs and Constituent Bodies helps maintain the ethos of the game we love.

    The RFU is at the forefront of upholding this tradition and has produced information and resources to make this process as easy and rewarding as possible. Our flagship scheme is the President's Awards, with categories to honour those community rugby clubs who have developed the finest volunteering programmes.

  • So, you have valuable jobs to be done in and around your club, but how do you find willing and able people? The hardest part of the process is finding suitable people, but sometimes they can be right on your doorstep. Conversely, casting your net as wide as possible through targeted publicity will reach people who otherwise might not have considered getting involved.

    The RFU suggests a number of straightforward avenues which should help you find the right people to help your rugby club grow and prosper.
