Volunteers are valuable! Becoming a volunteer for the WAFDA is an opportunity to contribute to the development of Flying Disc sports locally and across the state.
WAFDA and AFDA recognise the need for a Volunteer Management Program to focus on creating a supportive environment to address the issues of recruiting and retaining volunteers.
This program will increase members' awareness of volunteers and their contributions and also aims to make volunteers feel valuable by acknowledging their work and showing them appreciation. This program is named REAP Volunteer Management Program (VMP)
- Recruit: Engage and enlist volunteers.
- Educated: Provide training and support for volunteers.
- Acknowledge: Recognise and reward volunteer contributions.
- Preserve: Retain and prolong volunteer involvement.
The REAP Volunteer Management Program was the winner of the Volunteer Support category at the 2009 Sport and Recreation Industry Awards.
Know a volunteer that does great things for flying disc sports in WA? Why not nominate them to acknowledge them for their efforts!
Each year the Australian Flying Disc Association works with each State and Territory to supply us with unique "Ultimate Legends" glasses. These cannot be purchased, only earned!
