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.
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!
Volunteers are the lifeblood of community sport, and every year we recognise their invaluable contribution through the Townsville Junior Touch Football Joanne Sale Award for Volunteer of the Year.
First presented in 2016, the award recognises those individuals that go 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 to honour the memory of one of our sports most dedicated volunteers - 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.
