The Hautapu Hawks, we salute you for your support as volunteers!

The Hautapu Hawks are not just netballers — they are the volunteers who are the heart of our sport, and of our club.

As well as enjoying playing senior netball for Hautapu, the Hawks make it possible for many of our youngest players to enjoy the game too.

Volunteers are a valuable resource for sports teams and clubs, and in many cases, their involvement can ensure the survival of a club or team.

That is very much the case here at Hautapu Sports.

Without our volunteers, there wouldn’t be a game.

Volunteers help make sports happen!

The time and energy that our volunteers give make a significant difference in our club and community.

That’s whether you contribute as a coach or manager, umpire, bench official, support role, co-ordinator or simply say: “I’m here to help if you need me.”

We salute the Hautapu Hawks, and thank them for all they do at Hautapu Sports Club.
