Your Club Needs You - BIFC Volunteers Wanted



Hello everybody, I hope you’re enjoying seeing the days get warmer and brighter (until this weekend at least), it’s been great to see so many of you out on the pitch already this year, either supporting your children in our Youth Programs, or playing in our Adult Rec and new Women’s Soccer Nights.

 

Key to being able to provide these programs is the hard work and generosity of our volunteers, they really are the heartbeat of our club. We’re enormously grateful to them for everything they do and are proud of the place we have within our Island Community thanks to them.

 

As you can imagine, we’re always on the lookout for more support, and this can come in numerous different ways, so even if you’ve never kicked a ball before there’s likely a skill that you could bring that we would be able to make use of.

 

If you’re interested in volunteering, please reach out to us at info@bowenfc.com 

 

Currently we’re looking to fill the following Volunteer Roles:

·      Bowen Island Yacht Club Breakfast Support

·      Social Media Manager

·      50+ Organizer

·      Coaches/Managers

·      Board Members for 2025

·      Community Events Support (Canada Day/Bowfest)

 

Bowen Island Yacht Club Breakfast Support - June 10:

The BIYC hold an annual Martin Marine Round Bowen Race every Summer. Last year BIFC played a part in this by hosting a Charity Pancake Breakfast on the morning of the Race. This was a huge success and helped generate helpful funds for our club. We’re looking for volunteers to help with dishing out and cleanup from 7am – 9.30am. This was a lot of fun last year and we’re excited to be a part of this event again.

 

Social Media Manager:

In recent months we’ve been focused on developing the BIFC Brand to allow for a stronger and more easily navigated website, exciting new BIFC merchandise (coming soon) and a more prominent and engaging social media experience. This initiative has been spearheaded by Board Member Andy Gillooley with support from on Island Marketing Agency Brndmrk (Jade Pover). During this work they have established clear Brand Guidelines and Social Media Templates and are now looking for support in managing our social media channels.

 

This is a role that would be perfect for a young member of the community with an interest in social media, video editing, design or photography, or a desire to start a career in sports marketing. We’d look to provide expert coaching and mentorship and would be able to count these hours towards volunteer commitments required for schooling.

 

Coaches & Managers:

 

We’re always on the lookout for new coaches and managers to join our roster, so if you have an interest in this please reach out to us. Our coaches tell us of what a rewarding role this is as we see our players develop their skills with us, and we have a strong support network that offers relevant training and accreditation. We’d love to have you join the team, so if you have an interest, please reach out to info@bowenfc.com.

 

50+ Soccer Program Organizer:

 

In previous years we’ve been able to host a weekly 50+ Program and would like to bring that back as part of our ‘Soccer For All’ Commitment. We’re currently looking for players and a volunteer to help run the program.

 

Community Events Support:

 

We’re still in the early planning stages but want to make sure that we have a presence at Bowen Island Community events such as Canada Day and Bowfest. We’d love to have support with planning as well as setting up and managing our stalls during the day of the events, so if this is something you’d like to be a part of please let us know.

 

Board Members:

 

Our current board is elected until Spring 2025 but it’s never too early to start thinking about next year. If you’d like to be part of planning for the long-term success of the Club by joining the Board please let us know and we’ll keep you informed of all the latest developments and ensure you’re aware of the date of our next AGM.

 

We are very much aware that the community is what makes Bowen Island so great, and that with that comes a lot of asks for your time already, so we really appreciate you considering supporting Bowen Island Football Club in this way. Again, I’d like to thank all our current volunteers for their dedication and for making the Club what it is. We hope to hear from you, and as always, see you out on the pitch.

 

Thanks,

Niul, BIFC President
