NSWRL Celebrates National Volunteer Week

The NSWRL has called for nominations for the NSWRL Community Volunteer of the Year Awards for 2022, in a week that celebrates volunteers from all communities across the country.

The NSWRL awards recognise and reward our Community Football volunteers and clubs in a range of categories across all facets of the game including coaches, referees, inclusive and indigenous awards as well as regional volunteers involved in canteen support, team management, secretaries, presidents, and everything in between.

“It is important that as an organisation we can continue to acknowledge our volunteers who make an incredible commitment to our game and ensure that all participants can have an enjoyable game day experience," Chief Executive David Trodden said.

“In line with this week’s 2022 National Volunteers Week messaging, ‘better together’, it is certainly true in Rugby League that together our game is better and simply would not exist without volunteers.”

The annual NSWRL Volunteer of the Year Awards recognise the invaluable contribution made by almost 30,000 people who give up their time as volunteers to ensure NSWRL is able to run Community Football at more than 700 clubs across the state.

The awards also acknowledge the support given in the wider community as well as to the Rugby League community.

Community Rugby League Volunteer of the Year - proudly supported by Ignite HQ

Indigenous Volunteer of the Year - proudly supported by KARI Foundation
