Expenses and training costs
The club can offer to reimburse volunteers any reasonable expenses they have incurred in
the course of their work with the club. Where training is essential for volunteers to carry out
an agreed role, the club will identify the associated costs and reach a shared understanding
with the volunteer as to how these costs will be met.
Roles where training can be offered:
- Coaching for junior team coaches.
- Umpiring for the ‘Level One’ course aimed at junior coaches, managers, etc (equivalent of seniors “captains ticket”).
- RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol). As a registered club with a liquor license, we require volunteers with an RSA to serve alcohol. (Reimbursement available after agreed amount of voluntary service).
