Volunteers are the mainstay of club life at any rugby club, and Kenilworth is no different. From coaches, committees, coffee makers and car parking, almost every element of the club is run and managed by volunteers.
In November 2020 the Club launched our #BUILDTHECASTLE volunteer campaign, designed to attract more volunteers help to out. Click here to view our campaign video.
There are many ways in which people can volunteer – some needing specific skills and experience, and others needing simply enthusiasm and commitment!
As part of our Club development, we are looking at how we can improve the experience of our volunteers. This is a process that is underway and will continue as we head towards the new ground. There will be regular communication about what is happening, and opportunities for existing club members to contribute to the thinking.
As this work evolves, information and resources will be added to this section of our website. We hope that it will help all involved in the Club to feel confident in their role and included as part of our Club community.
We are delighted that a small group of volunteers are starting to develop the basis for a robust, fair and accessible process for recruiting, retaining and rewarding our volunteers. This is being led by our Volunteer Co-ordinator Janine McComiskey, a well-known face within our Womens Team.
I'm Janine, and as part of the Club's developing Volunteer Management Programme, I will be helping to support our amazing volunteers.
Over the years, my family and I have really enjoyed the playing, social and volunteering opportunities at the rugby club, and I am pleased to be playing my small part in ensuring that all our volunteers have the best experience possible.
To find out more about volunteering at Kenilworth RFC, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org We can then arrange a time to speak so that we can discuss your areas of interest and the volunteering opportunities at the club.
I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you make the most of your volunteer experience at Kenilworth RFC.
