Volunteers Required

The club is always looking for new volunteers to help with the running of the club. The club continues to fail to meet the requirements of gates steward and match officials for Senior Home games. We currently require volunteers for the following:

Juvenille Trainers/Mentors

  • Juvenille Trainers/Mentors required for training of underage teams on Saturday morning.
  • No prior experience required. Many of our current successful underage trainers had no previous experience when they started out.
  • The club arranges for all trainers/mentors to attend coaching courses with Tadhg Fenin, former Kildare stalwart and current underage development/coaching officer with Kildare County Board.
  • We actively encourage the participation of all parents who will no doubt find the experience most rewarding.
  • Please approach any of the mentors on Saturday morning if interested in getting involved or contact Paul Leahy on 087-2581928.

Match Gatesperson

  • All clubs around the country charge an entrance fee for Senior matches held at their respective clubs. The monies collected are used to pay for the referees on the day. The club urgently requires one or two volunteers to man the gates on the day of home senior club matches.
  • The role involves the collection of monies from all players and spectators who attend matches at Athgarvan pitch.
  • Matches are held every forthnight for the months of April to end of May. The individual is required to be stationed at the gate for no more than an hour before throw in between 18.30 and 19.30 every second Monday. Total amount of time volunteered would amount to approximately 15 hours over three months.
  • If anyone is willing to fulfil this role could they contact Ross Kierans on 087-2369093.

Match Umpires and Linesmen

  • Similarly, all clubs around the country are required to provide match officals at Senior matches held at their respective clubs. The club urgently requires four to six volunteers to act as umpires and linesmen.
  • Matches are held every forthnight for the months of April to end of May. Matches take place every second Monday with throw in at 19.30. Total amount of time volunteered would amount to approximately 15 hours over three months.
  • If anyone is willing to fulfil this role could they contact Ross Kierans on 087-2369093.
