SPARC recognises that the greatest single impediment to increasing participation in sport is attracting, training and retaining the volunteers that sport relies on to deliver programs and activities.
The success of Baseball in New Zealand is largely due to the dedication and hard work of those members, and their friends and families, who choose to become a volunteer and who give so much of their time and energy to Baseball. Every Club and Associations has its local heroes whose support is essential to Baseball's continued growth at the grassroots and success on the international stage.
The benefits of volunteering are many, not the least of which is making a positive contribution to Baseball and being part of a community of like-minded people.
Baseball New Zealand is developing resources to foster excellent volunteer management throughout the Baseball community. We support the SPARC's guidelines on the rights of volunteers and the policies of Volunteering New Zealand.
There are many opportunities available for those wanting to volunteer their time, energy and skills to Baseball in New Zealand. Contact us for more information.
