About the opportunities

Like most non-profits, sport organizations are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of paying for help. Gone are the days when youth sports were primarily offered at the local community centre with a volunteer parent running the program as the centre’s sport convener. A difficult job that included the many responsibilities of securing permits for all teams to practice, confirming venues for games, finding referees if needed and the most thankless responsibility of all… recruiting parent-volunteers to coach. A formula requiring volunteers recruit more volunteers. Of course, this system has been a staple of youth sports in Canada for decades, however, it is falling out of favour and being replaced by the European-style club system.

The club model allows for an entrepreneurial approach to sport. Coaches can start a club like they can any enterprise. The stronger the coach, the better the opportunity to attract other strong coaches and herein lies the motivation to improve in the delivery of the program. The downside for parents is the increase in fees. Community sports were always an affordable entry point for parents of young athletes. The club system is not so affordable and with the higher cost comes higher expectations.

In today’s marketplace, an organization must deliver above-average service in every aspect of the consumer experience. That would include accessing information easily on the website, following team activities on social media, offering a variety of programs that are responsive to young athletes, not to mention general administration, bookkeeping and digital marketing activities.

Delivering superior programs requires a team of highly effective people and Volleyball Winnipeg is interested in meeting more people who would like to join the team. Financial compensation is always provided. Here are some opportunities available for the right person…
