Thank a Sport Maker
Community Coaching Advisor
Sport Bay of Plenty
Attention all winter codes, it’s time to start thinking about your nominations for Sport Maker.
The Thank a Sport Maker campaign is part of a partnership with the Lotto Volunteer Foundation and Sport New Zealand that will see the Bay of Plenty sharing in over $1 million of quality clothing and sports gear to be awarded to Sport Makers throughout New Zealand over the next three years.
People can show their appreciation for the Sport Makers who blow a whistle, coach, balance the books or help cook the sausages for the fundraising BBQ, by nominating at www.sportbop.co.nz/sportmakers.
Each month three volunteers will be awarded, randomly selected from each region - Western, Central and Eastern BOP. The selected volunteers will receive a certificate of acknowledgement and a prize on behalf of Sport New Zealand, Lotto and Sport Bay of Plenty. They will also be eligible for the Sport Maker of the Year award at the annual Volunteer Breakfasts where they will receive a $500 voucher. The Sport Makers will also be a part of the monthly media release that outlines their great service to sport.
Becoming a Sport Maker is personally rewarding and fulfilling – 95% of sport volunteers recommend doing it. Sport New Zealand CEO, Peter Miskimmin emphasises the importance of volunteers, saying;
“Volunteers are the lifeblood of sport and literally make sport happen in our communities, with over 750,000 wonderful people giving 50 million hours of their time annually to keep our world class sport system humming”.
If you’d like to get involved contact Sport Bay of Plenty and we be able to point you in the right direction of a suitable local club or sports organisation.
