Volunteering Opportunities

Tournament Officials
Queensland is hosting the AKF (Olympic Federation) Nationals in August this year.
Karate is an Olympic sport in 2020 TOKYO
We need to provide table officials, ring marshalls and able bodied people to help out.
Full training provided and you get a ring side seat.
Your participation will also raise Sports Karate Australia's profile within the discipline.

Competitors Club
As you may know, not all children are fortunate enough to be able to afford to pursue all of their sporting dreams and aspirations due to the financial costs involved.
In response to the needs of some of our families, we support and promote involvement of parents, guardians and civic minded community members in our Competitors Club.

The Competitors Club is separate from SKA and functions like the P&C of a school.

The Competitors Club is not for profit and raises money strictly to be used by our students for their Karate aspirations.

The Competitors Club has traditionally in the past sponsored every willing competitor to enter our local tournaments.
They have also sponsored our away tournaments by hiring buses to Toowoomba, for example.

But without your help the financial assistance cannot continue.

The Competitors Club is made up of really great people, like you, who care about making sure all the kids have every chance possible to enjoy and achieve everything that they want to in karate without the worry of endless costs.

if you are able to volunteer, (and I hope that you are)please contact Liz Sheen, our current president on
0403 318 830 or at

We like to have representatives from all sectors; parents, guardians, competitors, instructors or even just generous locals willing to donate their time for this great cause.

Your generosity and help is appreciated and needed more than you realise.
