As a not-for-profit Community Amateur Sports Club, Bicester RUFC is entirely run by volunteers. Without the time, energy and commitment of volunteers, our club simply would not be here.

Whether they give up a few hours a month to lend a hand, turn up every week to help deliver the sport, or commit more time to help run the club, volunteers are the heart and soul of Bicester RUFC. 

Our volunteers embody rugby values, and help the club to provide a quality player experience for us to achieve our long-term Mission and Vision

You do not need any previous playing experience or a developed understanding of rugby to volunteer. The club actively supports development and pays for courses and CPD training. 

Volunteering brings many benefits including developing new skills or deploying your existing skills where they will be valued immensely, staying in the game if you previously played, being part of a team, and helping the club reach our ambition.

You'll help keep the rugby community alive, reduce the burden on current volunteers, and can dedicate as little or as much time as you want. Everyone is encouraged to bring fresh ideas and thinking to the club.

We all offers of help—whether you are willing to take on a specific role, or if you would prefer to do so in a flexible way without taking on a set role (active support). More detail is contained in each section below:

  1. Club & Section Roles
  2. Team Roles
  3. Active Support Groups (ASGs)

If you are willing to help out please email our Club Secretary, Craig Morley: craig.morley@bicesterrufc.co.uk

3. Active Support Groups (ASGs)

ASGs are a new way for adults to volunteer some time to rugby in a flexible way that suits them. Each ASG acts as a pool of volunteers and a resource for the Club's Officers and Directors to draw upon when needed for help.

The ways that ASGs can help the club is almost endless. We have the following Groups, and would invite people to join:

  1. Social Events Group – e.g. summer ball, Christmas party, and any other event ideas. You don't need any prior experience but if you run events at work or in another role, your experience would be welcome.
  2. Rugby Events Group – e.g. minis festival, tournaments, rugby camps. As above, you don't need any prior experience but if you run events at work or in another role, your experience would be welcome.
  3. Community Group – e.g. ad-hoc coaching in schools, running camps, assisting with a BRUFC presence at local fetes and fairs, grant bid writing, running projects, or have an interest in SEND provision etc. As above, you don't need any prior experience, just a passion to contribute.
  4. Club Operations Group – We would particularly welcome offers of help from those with experience and skills in HR, volunteer recognition, business planning, finance, fundraising, sponsorship, data protection etc.
  5. Communication Group – We would particularly welcome offers of help from those with experience and skills in communications and social media, branding, graphic design, marketing etc.
  6. Welfare Group – We would particularly welcome offers of help from doctors, nurses, mental health counsellors or psychologists, health and safety officers etc.

If you're willing and able to join one or more groups, please email craig.morley@bicesterrufc.co.uk
