Club Volunteering

Volunteers

Every rugby player has their roots in the clubs which make up the Welsh Rugby Union and rugby clubs depend on volunteers to make all aspects of rugby possible.

Volunteering in rugby goes beyond the coaches and referees. We have opportunities for everyone to get involved in a range of activities and roles which are essential to our game.

Being part of one of our clubs leads to you developing life long skills, from business administration to life-saving knowledge. The WRU aims to provide volunteers with opportunities to learn and develop their skills as a thank you for their time and commitment to the game.

Club Administrators are central to the clubs. Volunteers like Rhian Edwards of Seven Sisters started their rugby roots because their children were involved in the game. Rhian's roots began with supporting the junior section to develop the club. It developed in to a role with the senior committee giving Rhian the opportunity to apply existing skills and develop more.

If club administration is not for you, we have team based roles. Team Managers and First Aiders are central to making training and games happen every week. David Jones of Colwyn Bay is an example. As a youth team manager, he attended a Rugby First Aid course. He now uses this knowledge on a weekly basis with his team. He's also used them outside of rugby attending to an individual who collapsed in a petrol station.

Principality Outstanding Contribution

The WRU has teamed up with Principality Building Society to give every club in Wales the opportunity to nominate a volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution to the club. One volunteer per club will receive up to 10 tickets to watch Wales v Italy on Saturday 5 September at the Millennium Stadium as Wales put the finishing touches to their preparations for Rugby World Cup.
