Become a Sport Taranaki Volunteer

Sport Taranaki are involved with numerous events every year that require 100’s of people working behind the scenes as volunteers. These events involve school children participating in local events right through to elite athletes competing in international competitions. Becoming a Sport Taranaki volunteer is a great way to give back to sport, be involved in the community and to meet new like-minded people.

Sport Taranaki recognise the time investment volunteers are making so we like to look after those who help in the community by providing food and drink parcels depending on the length of time volunteers are required and on occasion event clothing is provided.  Volunteers often get premium viewing spots at events due to the nature of their roles and not to mention its always lots of fun.  Volunteering is also a great addition to a CV.  It shows your ability to work along side others, gives you a chance to develop your skills and shows care for the community.

Volunteers must be 18 years of age and over, be reliable and have a muck in attitude. Although we have many events throughout the year and many of our volunteers choose to volunteer regularly, we understand if you can only commit to a few events a year - It all helps.  We also need a variety of people with differing skills from traffic management to ticket selling so let us know if you can help.

If you are keen to volunteer please download this form and submit it to Terry Long at Sport Taranaki by email or drop it to our office on Maratahu Street in New Plymouth.
