Volunteers are essential to the sport and each week, across Wales, thousands of volunteers are involved in delivering athletics activities and events in a variety of settings. If your club needs some additional support and is in need of an extra pair of hands to help out at either a club training night or an event Join In can help.
Join In helps community sports clubs and groups to find more volunteers and supporters in their local area. We know that sports clubs are the heart of our communities – but we also know that local sport doesn’t just happen. It takes teams of brilliant, generous people to share their time and skills, and give something back. Together, you help to make our communities happier, healthier and more active places to live. Join In wants to spread that message.
Right now, 7 out of 10 sports clubs need more volunteers. As an official Games Legacy Charity Join In want to change that. Their aim is to help you find more supporters and helpers in your neighbourhood, whenever you need them.
Thousands of local sports clubs and groups have already added their page to Join In and here are just a few reasons why:
It’s the big one. Visitors to the Join In website search by postcode for clubs in their area that need a hand. Don’t miss out on reaching potential volunteers near you.
It is completely free for all clubs and groups to be part of Join In.
We know you’re busy; that’s why it’s quick and simple to create a club page. And you can edit your details any time you like.
Join In run national campaigns year round and we want as many of our clubs to benefit from our marketing, PR and communications as possible.
The aim of Join In is to support local sports clubs and groups – so your inbox won't be filled with unwanted emails and they will only be in touch when they have useful information.
Club Hub is a great source of information which will help club leaders develop and support their club. If you want to attract new volunteers, promote your club or find more information in relation to managing your club the Join In Club Hub is an excellent resource.
Building for the Future
Join In is a great way to attract new volunteers, supporters and members with a wide range of skills – strengthening your club or group for years to come.
Start today – by creating a Join In page for your club. Welsh Athletics have already taken advantage of the initiative by registering events that will attract more volunteers and enhance the delivery of the sport throughout the year.
