This is not your usual conversation about volunteering in sport.
We’re not going to tell you what you should and shouldn’t be doing. We’re not going to shame you into barbecuing sausages at the next club event, signing up as a coach, or joining a committee.
You already know the value of volunteering in sport — many clubs and organisations couldn’t run without them. In Australia, an estimated three million people volunteer in the sport and active recreation sector each year. Today, you’re going to meet one of those people — it’s a really thoughtful and fun conversation with Nick Bishop, who’ll share his volunteering story in a way that’ll uplift and entertain you.
You’ll love his self-deprecating humour throughout the interview.
And, you’ll hear about his volunteering roles, including president of Freshwater Amateur Swim Club, of which we’re members. Plus, an unexpected story about his mum, and her sporting pedigree.
Mostly, you’ll enjoy Nick’s perspective on volunteering in sport — and why sometimes — all it takes is bringing good vibes to make a big difference to everyone’s experience.
