Volunteer Recruitment and Retention - How To Treat Volunteers?

Sport Auckland worked with AUT University as part of the Corporate and Community Video assignment for 3rd year Bachelor of Communication Studies students, majoring in television and screen production.

John Pelasio, an AUT student along with fellow class mates Christian Jones and Ethan Thompson as a crew and music by Reuben Grey created this video on ‘How to Treat Volunteers’

Sport Auckland would like to thank John and his crew for all their hard work and creativity in this video as well as the volunteers who took an active starring role in this production.

Lotto NZ Volunteers - Thank a Sports Maker!

There are nearly a million volunteers in New Zealand who give up their time for sport so Lotto NZ and Sport NZ have teamed up to reward them for the awesome work they do.

Sports volunteers or 'Sport Makers' come in all shapes and sizes - whether it’s blowing a whistle, coaching, balancing the books or helping cook the sausages for the fundraising BBQ - they are all important in helping make sport happen.

To show our appreciation, we're giving away $2,000 worth of Lotto Volunteers sports gear to 10 deserving Sport Makers every draw. One of these Sport Maker finalists will also win the ultimate team experience. A team experience could be a team trip, elite coaching or a club day, and the best part is that you get to decide who wins! To learn more, click here

But first, we need your help to find out who all these amazing people are!

Nominate now and tell us why your Sport Maker deserves to win - your team will love you for it.
