The Volunteer Hub is your one stop shop to know what the different team roles are, what the requirements are, and where to go in order to be registered and qualified. Our Club is focused on inclusion and having fun, not victory at any cost. 

Our team volunteers may receive a small refund on a player’s rego fees, once they are registered fully, have completed any mandatory training, and have a valid NSW Working With Children Check (WWCC) or equivalent. Please make contact with the Club when you have completed all steps required.

Coaches

Team Coaches provide our players with a positive coaching experience, at training and on game days. Coaches are expected to conduct themselves professionally and positively – remembering these are kids, it should be fun, and it is a game. Coaches make a significant difference – these are the experiences that help a player determine if they stay with league or not.

Coaches will provide training experiences and drills that prepare their players positively for game day, including rules, technique, tackling properly (and safely), good sportsmanship etc. Coaches must only interact with a game referee during the game with the Ground Manager also in attendance.
