Volunteer Engagement for Sports Leagues & Associations

This interactive workshop will provide insight into some of the most challenging aspects of engaging volunteers in the sports sector including recognizing problematic behaviour, approaching issues effectively and how to measure, analyze and improve volunteer performance.

Participants will learn how to:

• Recruit and select sports volunteers
• Retain and motivate volunteer teams
• Deal with difficult volunteers and parents 
• Address problematic volunteer performance
• Navigate the volunteer dismissal process
