FC Five Dock is run entirely by volunteers – people just like you, who share a passion for football and commitment to helping running one of our areas oldest community hubs. Our superhero volunteers look after every part of our club – they coach, manage teams, support junior referees, help with ground set up and work on the committee.

Volunteer help means registration fees are kept as low as possible & we can keep teams on the field.

Competition Secretary

This is an administrative role with no expectation to attend match days or required to be at the park.

What’s Needed? Act as point of contact for coaches and managers who wish to submit a forfeit for their game or request their game date to be changed. You will then need to complete an online form & submit to the association.

Time Commitment? Not more than 1 hour per week during the Winter Season (April to August).

Game Leader Co-Ordinator

What’s Needed? The game leader co-ordinator is responsible for managing  the roster of our junior referees (known as game leaders). In this role you would need to ensure each of our U8 to U11 games have a referee assigned from the pool of available referees. Acting as the point of contact for our game leaders, you would manage the list of which game leaders are available each week and let them know what time and on which field their games are on. There is no need for you to attend games on the weekend, this is more an administrative role.

Interested in being a game leader co-ordinator or are open to volunteering a few hours, just email melissa@fcfivedock.com.au

To be a volunteer you will require a valid working with Children number. You can apply for one here, and it’s free.
