There are 10 officials needed for one game of goalball, therefore we are always looking for budding new officials. Relevant experience of sport sessions is desirable, but not essential. We want our participants to feel welcomed and supported, and it’s important to us that all our volunteers demonstrate confidence, friendliness and good communication skills.
Responsibilities of a Goalball Activator Activators will help to run tournaments and goalball sessions, with the aim of getting more people with visual impairments more active more often. As an activator you can get involved through officiating, assisting, coaching, leading, and promoting goalball tournaments and sessions. Being an activator will be a rewarding experience, providing a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, gain confidence, develop skills and overall – have fun!
Why volunteer? There are a number of reasons as to why individuals want to become a volunteer but we find no matter what the motivation all volunteers benefit from:
Developing existing and new skill sets
Making a difference in the community
Meeting new people
Giving back to the sport
