Volunteers Information Day

Boronia Hawks will host an informal get together from 11:00am to 2:00pm on 3rd December for all members and supporters who want to support the Club as volunteers for the 2018 season.  The venue is Tormore Reserve, with catering by one of our most valued volunteers, Ellen Johnson.
There are lots of volunteer roles around the Club for a variety of different people! From committee positions and specific roles around the club throughout the season, to smaller jobs on game day.
It doesn’t matter if you have lots of time, or only a little. It doesn’t matter if you’ve volunteered before or not.  We’re here to support everyone and make it easy, flexible and fun for you to get involved.
We’re proud to have a strong network of fantastic volunteers, but we’re always looking for more to spread the load.  So if you’re keen to help out, or have some more questions about the different roles on offer, please contact Kristan Wood on 0411 605 203.
We cordially invite all members of the Junior and Senior Committees and the Board, as well as anyone already with a volunteer role, or just interested in helping out in other ways during the season and on match days to join us for the information day.
