Volunteers

Like any volunteer-based organisation, our volunteers are the lifeblood of the IQA. Split into broad departments, our volunteers make everything the IQA do possible. From translating rulebooks and managing our technology stack, to organising our flagship tournaments and working with our members, to the nuts-and-bolts work of the legal and operations teams, to improving the way quadball is played through rulebooks and raising the standards of officiating with resources for referees. Quadball is a young sport where every volunteer makes a massive difference. If you want to help grow quadball, head over to our Volunteers page to see what roles are currently available.
