Volunteer Benefits

We thank and reward all the wonderful volunteers of the club for their hard work and dedication in a number of ways:

  • Exec committee members can sometimes spend upwards of 4 hours a week attending to the various needs and requirements
    of the club to help keep us running and operating in a smooth and efficient manner. As such, they are credited for sessions and tournaments etc, so they can enjoy the fruits of their labours at a discounted rate.
  • Other committee members will be remunerated at varying rates depending on their performance
  • Named team coaches will receive a free session when coaching, and will be exempt from team selection
  • Academy coaches will receive remuneration for their time and efforts with our juniors
  • All volunteers get added to our quarterly volunteer thanks, where the number of hours volunteered is proportional to their chance to win some Bees’ gear or free sessions.
  • Discounted or free training and professional development, depending on the needs of the roll.

If you're interested in seeing some of these benefits for yourself, come get involved by trying out for one of the above missing committee gaps, or volunteer at our various academy/community events!
