Be(ach) Volunteer, Be(ach) Fair! -
The main aims of the Be(ach) Volunteer, Be(ach) Fair! (VolFair) project are to exchange knowledge about volunteering systems and to improve the volunteer's policies by using the benefits of beach handball (fair play as a main sport's rule) as a model during the organisation of sport events.
With the sport of Beach Handball becoming more and more professionalised, it is becoming increasingly harder to rely on the “all in one" type of volunteers (coaches, players and event organizers are volunteers at the same time), even though that enabled the fast growth and spreading of this sport by respecting its main rule: fair play. By increasing the seriousness of the sport’s competition level, an urgent need has grown for development of new volunteering systems that will enable future volunteer’s motivation and involvement.
The ultimate goal of the project is to therefore set the guidelines related to volunteers’ management that could be useful for all future sport events, particularly in Beach Handball competitions.
Led by project co-ordinator Beach Handball Club Zagreb (CRO), partners in the project include University Sports Association of Poland (POL), Camelot Beach Handball Tournament (NED) and the EUSA Institute (SLO).
Funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, the project will run for a period of two years. For more information, please see the official website https://beachvolunteers.com.
