Volunteering at Crewkerne RFC – #GetInvolved! 

Successful rugby clubs are more than just victorious teams on the pitch. Players and coaches are vitally important but so are the many dedicated volunteers who work hard behind the scenes to help the club to function and become successful. 

You don’t have to be a rugby expert to get involved. Whether you’re a current player, someone whose hung up their boots or you’ve never played rugby before, you could be a valued rugby volunteer.

Here at Crewkerne RFC, we are lucky to have a number of very hard working, dedicated volunteers, especially involved with our growing Mini/Junior section. Many are parents that have “got involved” to help out and are now qualified coaches, team managers, first aiders etc. However as the section develops and grows, we always need more volunteers to undertake the numerous tasks required if we are to provide the best and safest environments in which our players can participate.

#GetInvolved! Do you enjoy groundwork, maintenance, fundraising, rugby! It doesn’t need to be onerous. If you want to know more about the roles and tasks we need to fulfil at Crewkerne Rugby Club, please email admin@crewkernerugby.com or speak to any of our coach or Committee members.

Putting all of that into practice is where it really counts! September's volunteer of the month has been awarded to the very lovely Emme Nebel (player / manager 1st XV Women's team). Here is what Grant Jackson (coaching co-ordinator) has said about why Emma has been recognised for the work she has put in to establishing our very first ladies team.

"Most appropriate that Emma should be our first volunteer of the month in view of the vision and tireless work she has undertaken on and off the pitch in helping CRFC get to a point where it could field its first ever Ladies team and helping them record a win in their first game".
