Summary

Volunteers are central to sport at all levels, from mega-events to grassroots clubs. Sport Volunteering is a definitive guide to the issues associated with managing volunteers in sport.

It focuses on the psychology of the voluntary experience, the management challenges inherent in managing a volunteer workforce, for not for profit and other groups, and the development of volunteers. It provides a perspective on the roles of volunteers in the development and delivery of sport in a range of contexts - events, clubs, associations and other non-profit groups – and explores important contemporary issues such as sustainability, diversity and the management of risk.

This book is essential reading for anybody studying sport volunteering or managing volunteers in sport, and a valuable resource for students of sport development, sport management, sport business, sports events, sport administration, sport policy, community sport, sport facilities, sport operations, event management or sport coaching.
