Call for volunteers to help organise the Minis & Youth section of Wimbledon RFC

We are lucky to have a good number of parents volunteer on our club committee. Without them there would literally be no club for the 500+ kids to enjoy their rugby at.

We are actively seeking a handful of new parents to take part in the running of the club.

People from all backgrounds help run the club. What connects us all is a desire to help the club run smoothly so the kids have the best time possible playing rugby. You definitely don't need to be a 'rugby' nut or have played rugby. A desire to help and volunteer is key. Our work covers managing facilities and pitches at the club, equipment the kids use in training, kit, matches that we schedule for the kids, organising coaching and ref courses, summer camps, tours, child welfare, cake sales and social events, parking, website and comms, RFU registrations, our netball club and girls rugby, volunteering and schools liaison...

The urgent need is to find a new minis chair (that's an individual to oversee u5 to u11 age groups)

Our current minis chair (and u8 head coach), Jon Hall, is moving away from the area this summer. As a result we are looking for a new minis chair. The role requires a commitment of two short evening meetings a month during the season and some email and other occasional work.

Other roles we would like help with are

1. Webmaster to help Lu (who also leads our incredibly successful girls rugby teams). Some knowledge of Drupal and basic HTML helpful
2. Social secs - a couple of people to take over from the sterling work that Frances and Zoe have been doing for a few years
3. Comms officer - someone to help do weekly updates on this website and run the new weekly email that we're setting up from next season. An ability to write with few typos (!) and basic design knowledge would be ideal
4. Secretary for the committee - someone to make sure people know when the meetings are, write up notes and keep the meetings going.
5. Child welfare to support Sophie and Kate. On-boarding new coaches, running DBS checks, approving tours and making sure touch-line behaviours are appropriate
6. Schools liaison officer - along with our New Breed of Rugby Club positioning (more on this next season) we are hoping to find someone to keep our club front of mind with local schools and open up opportunities
