Author/Presenter: 
John R Cooper and Nadina Ayer PhD candidate

This poster presents the results of a study designed to examine the roles, challenges and experiences of women volunteers and employees in sport in the twin Cites of Kitchener and Waterloo, a medium-sized community (400,000) in southern Ontario, Canada. It notes that women who volunteer encounter constraints and different experiences than men who volunteer.

The results are compared to national trends of women volunteers in Canada. The on-line survey included questions on demographic data, participation in sport, Life Satisfaction and Leisure Motivation, constraints, supports and benefits in volunteering.

As well as presenting information on demographics, the poster presents Discussion points, Theoretical and/or Practical Implications, Benefits of volunteering, Motivating factors, as well as conclusions.
