Get involved with the Coventry Bears as a volunteer
Would you like to be part of the Coventry Bears team?
Would you like to be part of the Coventry Bears team? The Coventry Bears have begun a volunteer recruitment drive to primarily assist the club on home games at the Butts Park Arena, Coventry.
The club is calling for both men and women of all ages, to develop their interest in sport and rugby league by becoming a rugby club volunteer. The Bears will find a suitable role for everyone who wants to put their hands up to the cause, and suitable training will be provided to ensure they are equipped to do the role they are assigned.
Alan Robinson, Managing Director at Coventry Bears, is very keen to welcome new people to the team;
“Volunteers are indeed the backbone of our game. Our players and coaches are vitally important to us but we also have a dedicated team of volunteers who work so hard behind the scenes to ensure that our game days are a huge success.
At Coventry Bears we realise that our volunteers do not have to be a rugby expert to get involved with the club. Whether you are a rugby player, retired from the game or indeed an individual who has never picked up a rugby ball, you could still have the essential skills we are looking for to become a valued member of the volunteer team here”.
Current volunteer vacancies available at the club include; match day PR and social media manager, match day stewards, merchandise manager, match day reporter, match day announcer, official club mascot representative, deputy team manager and operations manager.
These position are crucial to the smooth and successful running of a match day and ensure the match day offering for fans is the best it can be. Volunteering for any of the positions will require the volunteer to commit a minimum of 6 hours of their time at each Coventry Bears home game during the season.
There are many great benefits to becoming a member of the Coventry Bears team including:
• Confidence building
• Learning and developing new skills
• Enhancing work experience
• Meeting new people and broadening your social network
• Making a difference in the community
• Having fun!
Rob Easthope is a volunteer at the club.
"I joined the Bears as a volunteer at the start of their professional journey. At 62 years of age I was a little dubious about what I could offer but should not have worried. Everyone at the club the CEO President coaching staff players and other volunteers made me welcome from day one. I have made many lasting friendships and will never be short of somewhere to stay in Australia if I ever visit because of our strong Aussie connections.
Presently I look after the first team kit and equipment because I made myself available for both home and away games. Don't worry if you cannot commit as much time as I do as any help especially at home games at the Butts would be very much appreciated. Advantages include watching the Bears meeting new people and forming lasting friendships. The best part of the day is our after match drink which is always fun especially after a Bears win. So if you can spare some time to come along and join us at the Butts Park Arena!
Our next home game is on June 25th against Newcastle. If you think you can help the club in anyway then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
