Phoenix Netball club is a community-based organisation that is run by a group of passionate volunteers. If you would like to help the club please volunteer for one of the many roles available. There are many different roles you can help with from management committee positions, coaching, fundraising, grounds maintenance or game day support at Downey Park.

To ensure we can keep the club running, improve our facilities and provide new and exciting opportunities for our members, we ask that each family volunteer at least once during the season. If you can give some of your time or expertise your family levy of $60 will be refunded to you at the end of the season.

Some of the ways you can volunteer are:  

  • Fundraising support
Spend 2 hours assisting the club with fundraising activity. Opportunities will be listed here throughout the year. These will include: retail barbecues (Bunnings), club fundraiser day at Downey Park, Pink Sports Day, Legacy Badge sales (Anzac Day and Remembrance Day).

  • Game Day Netball Liaison (Downey Park)
Spend 2 hours on a Saturday observing off-court behaviour of spectators, coaches and managers. All clubs are requested to provide a netball liaison on behalf of DPNA each Saturday fixture round. The role of game day liaisons is to help encourage a positive culture for players and ensure the DPNA Code of Behaviour is followed by people off-court.

Liaisons are required to be a member of an affiliated club (this includes players parents), wear the DPNA yellow vest and be a responsible adult.
