Volunteers are the lifeblood of our club. We have in excess of 160 committee members, coaches, managers, assistant coaches and numerous others who play a key role to ensure the 1500 players can get onto the pitch each match day. With this comes hours of preparation, planning, and consistent execution.
As a club, we are always on the lookout for more help. Clearly, a squad of able coaches and managers is important for fielding teams each week. However, there are many other roles that keep the club operating at an executive level and behind the scenes. If you think you have skills in any areas, we would love to hear from you.
MUM FC supports our volunteers in a number of important ways, as described below.
Our constitution has detailed role descriptions for our most senior and executive roles.
There is a coaches resource page here on our web site which has information about the coaching curriculum, how we help to cover the costs of coaching accreditation courses.
There is a manager's page which has a full guide about administration of a team, from filling in match cards, through to putting together parent rosters.
There is also an Age Coordinator's pack which has more information on running grading, selecting coaches and other information.
All Volunteers Should Register On MyFootballClub

How we help our volunteers - Financially
We understand that our volunteers personally give many hours of their time to the club. We offer financial support for volunteers through four programs:
1. Volunteer Levy Refund
Every player registration includes a component to cover the volunteer levy. We all know families who, for whatever reason, are not able to take a volunteer role in the club. But for those who do and contribute more that 5 hours per season, we offer a refund of the volunteer levy paid by coaches, managers and other volunteers. Click here to find out more about the volunteer levy and how to get your refund.
2. Executive Committee Fee Refund
If you take an executive committee position, then the hours are usually more significant. Members of the executive committee are able to obtain a refund against fees (for themselves or child/children) of up to $500 per season.
3. Life Membership
Committee members who have put in continued effort over a number of years are able to earn life membership to the club. There is strict criteria to attain life membership and if you think you know of someone who has made a significant contribution to the club over a sustained period, then please inform the club secretary. Life Memberships are awarded annually at the AGM (usually around October/November).
4. Business Directory
If as a club member you operate or work in a business and are looking to promote your business further, we offer an entry in the club's Business Directory. We profile and advertise member businesses to the club community by way of giving back and keeping it local, to better serve your business as a way of saying thanks.
Volunteer Thank You Nights
Twice a season we like to get all of our coaches and managers, along with their spouses/partners to join us for a social thank you event in our club rooms at Len Shearer Pavilion. Look out for your email of invitation from the club committee once the season is in full swing.
