Working with Children Check Co-ordinator
It is essential that all our volunteers who have any involvement with players under 18, whether it be coach or team manager, have a valid Working With Children Check. The WWCC co-ordinator manages the list of volunteers together with their WWCC status. This does not take a large amount of time, but vital to the running of the club.
Social Media Helper

These do not require a significant amount of time.

The Wrap Editor
Our weekly wrap within the winter season has become a key communication tool for the club. We would love a new person, or persons, to take on the task of bringing the wrap together each week. The job involves collecting reports from each team, gathering results and photos and bringing all this information together to create, and then send the wrap out.
The wrap is produced in MailChimp, it does not require significant technical skills. This is a commitment each week, it is also possible to have multiple share this role to reduce the effort.
Pitch Booking Manager
Our pitch is available for schools and other external groups to hire. Our pitch booking manager, tracks the bookings, and wait lists for these bookings.
Grant identification and co-ordination
Various government bodies regularly offer grants to organizations. We ideally need a person who can help identify available grants and co-ordinate the grant submissions and writing of our grant applications.
Our club is fortunate to have a couple of major sponsors, but as a club we also rely on our smaller sponsors. We require a person, or people, to help us with sponsorship ideas and management/development of sponsors. The role can be as small or large as you want it to be.
Junior Section Treasurer
The junior section treasurer assists the club treasurer of management of umpire payments to junior team managers, management of player fees where corrections/changes are required and assists the junior section president with management budgetting for the year.
This only requires a small amount of time, and requires organizational skills.
Junior Umpire Co-ordinator
The role of junior umpire co-ordinator involves allocating umpires each week to junior games. Hockey Victoria allocate many of the Friday night umpires, and the co-ordinator allocates Southern umpires where there is no HV umpire allocated, as well as umpires for all Saturday morning games. This role does require commitment each week, but it can be split over multiple people eg one manages Friday night and another Saturday morning, or week about.
As a club we have significant number of coaches, umpires and technical officials that are accredited with Hockey Australia with various qualifications, We also have an obligation to ensure that we do have the at least the minimum number of these accreditations. The accreditation co-ordinator tracks/manages our umpires and coaches, together with accreditations to ensure we have appropriate numbers.
This does not require significant time, only ad-hoc.

If you are a frustrated gardener who does not have a garden, or someone who just cannot do enough, or even just want to help, we would love some people to help regularly with the garden. No need to commit for ever. But if you are interested in helping with the garden, please let us know.
