As all administrators know, volunteers are the lifeblood of youth sports organizations. Without them, it would be impossible for many organizations to survive.
With the Fall season fast approaching, now is a crucial time for recruiting new volunteers to help operations run smoothly.
Unfortunately, from visiting some youth sports websites, a potential volunteer would have no idea what’s needed or how to sign up.
This morning, I visited a small sample of 15 youth sports websites across a number of sports. All told, only three had information for volunteers readily available – and only one of those three was up-to-date with information for this season.
Why? Had they reached their capacity for volunteers this season (doubtful) … or did they unintentionally omit this important information (more likely)?
Recruiting volunteers is hard. Don’t make it even harder.
Make volunteer info & registration easy to find on your site!
Post contact information for people to ask questions!
Explain what’s in it for them – why should they volunteer?
With these changes, you’ll be on your way to a more successful volunteer recruitment period. Best of luck this season!
