Abstract

This report details the findings from the Sports Volunteers’ Experiences Survey conducted on behalf of Sports and Recreation New Zealand (SPARC) in 2007. In the survey, sports volunteers report many positive experiences but also identify some challenges and barriers to successful volunteering. Findings from the survey cover demographics, level of participation, level of commitment, hours of volunteering, other volunteering commitments, motivations, experiences and attitudes, and satisfaction with volunteering. This report includes recommendations on ways to improve the sports volunteer experience.
