Why has the 2021 AMG been postponed?
In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, the 2021 Australian Masters Games which were due to be held from 9-16 October 2021 will be postponed until 23-30 April 2022.
This has been a difficult decision however, the health and safety of our competitors, officials and volunteers is our key priority.
The decision to postpone has been made in consultation with key stakeholders including the Confederation of Australian Sport and the Western Australian State Government through Tourism Western Australia, and careful consideration has been given to how we can deliver the best event possible to our passionate Australian masters sport community.
The 2021 Australian Masters Games team remains excited to bring the Games to Perth for the first time since 1993, and continue to look forward to delivering a great Games with you in 2022.
Will I still be a volunteer for the postponed Games?
All current 2021 AMG volunteers will be contacted and have the option to volunteer for the postponed Games if they want to. Current volunteers will not need to re-apply or re-interview.
The volunteer program will be reviewed and required numbers may change due to involvement of sports and expected participant numbers. If more volunteers are required applications will reopen. If less volunteers are required a selection process will be implemented.
What if I no longer want to volunteer for the postponed Games?
All current 2021 AMG volunteers will be contacted via email and given the option to continue volunteering for the postponed Games or to withdraw.
What if I want to volunteer for the postponed Games but I don’t know my availability yet?
If you are unsure of your availability for April 2022 there is an option to select “I’m not sure at this stage”. Once the plans for the postponed Games are confirmed, we will be in touch again to confirm your availability.
Will I still have the same volunteer role for the postponed Games?
2021 AMG will endeavor to keep all volunteers in the same role that they have been allocated. If this is not possible following a review of the volunteer program you will receive a new role offer with the option to accept or decline.
I previously withdrew from being a volunteer due to border restrictions or other reasons, can I volunteer again for the postponed Games?
Current 2021 AMG Volunteers at the time of postponement will be given first preference for the postponed Games. If you are now available to volunteer for the postponed Games please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you if positions become available following the review of the volunteer program.
Will my current shifts and training session be transferred over to the postponed dates in 2022?
No. It is likely that there will be significant changes to the volunteer shifts and training program. With this in mind your current bookings will be cancelled and shift and training bookings will reopen in 2022.
If volunteer applications re-open how will I know?
Volunteer applications will be posted on the Games website and also on volunteer.com.au
To register your interest in volunteering for the postponed Games you can contact email@example.com and we will contact you if/when volunteer applications reopen.
