Parents and Volunteer Roles


Volunteers are essential to the success of almost every wrestling club, team and event. Irish Amateur Wrestling Association volunteers are particularly important, as they serve as the backbone of the organisation. From helping out with a local youth and adult wrestling club or teams, at local and national events or even at committee level of the Irish Amateur Wrestling Association Board of Management.

Volunteers all across the country are constantly working behind the scenes and away from the training mat or gym, all for the benefit of its members.

The Irish Amateur Wrestling Association (IAWA) is voluntary organization. We deliver wrestling programmes across Ireland for people of all ages and abilities. From children as young as 8 up to teenagers and adults. We are a sporting organisation that caters for people of all genders, ages and backgrounds.

The IAWA endeavors to engage volunteer Coaches/Referees/Officials/ Parents or Adult Helpers to provide assistance to clubs with everything from

  • Transport
  • Organization and Administration
  • Improving conditions within clubs in general

Together these people help wrestlers reach their full potential. Volunteers can also help our younger members to explore their own ideas and build a positive sense of self-worth through training and competing in wrestling.

If you are a parent/ adult and would like become an IAWA volunteer contact us at irishwrestling@outlook.ie

Depending on the role in the club, volunteers must become Garda Vetted. As a members of the IAWA this can be arranged.

After the initial joining the IAWA & Garda Vetting, volunteers/ helpers and officials will be remunerated for expenses incurred while carrying out their roles for their club or IAWA
