What is a Grassroots Hero?

Grassroots sport is facilitated by an army of over 6 million volunteers who work behind the scenes so we can keep playing the sport we love.

From coaching, refereeing, running the line, marking the pitches, cleaning the clubhouse, serving behind the bar, washing the kit and much, much more. 

Without these heroes, grassroots wouldn’t exist. 

With this in mind we want to put the spotlight on these people with the first instalment of our Volunteer Recognition Series. 




Each month we will select 3 grassroots heroes from the nominations received. 

Each winner will receive a Grassroots Hero rain jacket and a feature article on our media channels, to provide some deserved recognition.
