This month sees the launch of the Munster Rugby and Right Price Tiles Volunteer Recognition Scheme. This is a fantastic opportunity for your club/school to acknowledge your loyal volunteers and to help raise the profile of all rugby volunteers in the province.
By nominating individuals for the programme you will be helping these people receive the recognition they deserve. Nominations for the first Monthly Award close on the 30th of November so let s get this scheme up and running by starting to send the required nomination information in as soon as possible.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of all rugby organisations and by supporting the Recognition Programme you can contribute towards highlighting their value.
To acknowledge significant contributions made by individual volunteers who have developed, promoted, contributed and/or advanced the sport of Rugby.
To create awareness, encourage participation and lift the profile of volunteers in Rugby.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of every sport and leisure organisation in Ireland. They contribute time and energy year after year to assist in the development of sport and leisure activities. Without these people our clubs and organisations would fail to function effectively. Munster Rugby identifies the need to recognise and reward those individuals that have devoted their time by honouring them with a recognition programme.
The programme will reward and acknowledge the efforts of volunteers who devote countless hours week in week out, year after year to provide a safe and enjoyable environment at the grass roots of the game. From the kitchen worker to the weekend linesman to the parents that manage under-age sides, it is up to you to nominate worthy contributors.
This inaugural programme will run from November 2005 to May 2006 with a reward scheme consisting of six individual Volunteer of the Month awards. The recognition programme is open to any person currently associated with domestic rugby in Munster, in a non-paid capacity at a club, school, college, university or associated affiliate of Munster Branch IRFU.
Successful nominees who meet the set criteria will be recognised for their efforts by receiving a prize package including tickets to a Munster match and a gear bag full of official Munster apparel and accessories.
