Volunteers are the driving force behind our sport; and if you've got some free time to help, we would love to hear from you!
Our sport is run, in no small part, thanks to the tireless efforts of our many volunteers, who freely give up their time to make sure our children have the chance to play an exciting, fun, and safe team sport. It's because of the efforts of these dedicated individuals, that our sport is so well managed at a local, grass-roots level.
We've compiled some information to help you answer this question, but we recommend getting one anyway!
There's several ways that you can get involved as a volunteer, but here's just a few:
Are you a student or recent graduate looking for experience, help out your club and gather invaluable experience in your field.
If you're ready to get involved, contact your club and let them know!
That's okay, we don't need to you work a full-time job, just give up an hour or so when you are free. Volunteers are valued, no matter how much time they can give, so don't be afraid to offer an just an hour a week; it all makes a big difference!
While we can't ever really repay the effort that our volunteers make to support our sport, we do our very best to recognise their contribution each year through the Townsville Junior Touch Football Joanne Sale Award for Volunteer of the Year.
First awarded in 2016 as the award recognised those individuals that went above-and-beyond throughout the year to help their club, the organisation (Townsville Junior Touch Football), and the sport of touch football.
In 2018, with the blessing of the Sale family, Townsville Junior Touch Football named the award in honour of touch football stalwart and late president of the Frogs Touch Club - Joanne Sale.
Nominations for the Joanne Sale Award for Volunteer of the Year are open for three weeks from the start of November each year, with all nominees (one per club) being announced on Semi Final night (Friday) and the overall winner being announced the following week (Grand Final night).
To nominate a dedicated volunteer from your club, speak to your club committee or contact TJT.
