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.

Current Volunteering Openings

Ground Official

Ground officials volunteer for at least a few hours per week or season to help keep things running smoothly and games can be played in a safe & supervised environment. Ground Officials help with ground preparation and setup as well as ensure all the game day processes happen correctly and ensure games are being supported in the right spirit.

Ground official duty is arranged on a roster system, you get a cool orange vest and get to spend time watching some great community football games. (maybe a free sausage roll from the BBQ as well).

Game Leader Co-Ordinator

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 info@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.


Ground Setup & Pack Up

Anyone who can spare a few hours on a Saturday or a Sunday to help setup the fields ahead of games commencing.
