The Factors Contributing To Sport Volunteer Satisfaction


Volunteering can be defined as an activity where an individual dedicates his personal free time, his energy, knowledge and skills to the benefit of other people, groups or causes. Nowadays, volunteers have become an important human resource in many sectors, especially in sports. Under these circumstances, assessing the factors that contribute to sport volunteer satisfaction is an approach that provides valuable information about the sport volunteering motivation. The purpose of this research is to identify and examine the characteristics of volunteer motivation and the factors responsible for the volunteer satisfaction by using the Bang and Challadurai’s volunteer motivation scale and the Kuhn and Guzley’s volunteer satisfaction index. To achieve the purpose of this research, some questionnaires were distributed among sport volunteers. The questionnaire was focused on measuring the perception of sport volunteering motivation and how volunteers understood their experience according to their level of satisfaction. From various key subjects, some motivation factors were taken into consideration, like personal growth, interpersonal contact, career orientation, community involvement and love of sport, to have an effect on the motivation of sport volunteers. According to the outcomes, volunteer satisfaction factors have a significant effect on sport volunteering satisfaction. For all people involved in sport management, this research provides evidence on the perception of satisfaction for volunteers in sport volunteer programs.
