Redcliffe Padres is blessed to have an amazing team of volunteers we affectionately refer to as the ‘red army’.


Whether it be helping with a working bee, coaching a team, scoring, umpiring or even helping in the canteen, without our volunteers, our club wouldn’t thrive like it has done. This season, we are once again asking for volunteers to fill our red army ranks! Whether you can help for just an afternoon or a full season, we’d love to hear from you.


If you would like to help shape the future of our club, please contact our Secretary below. Please remember that as part of our club’s volunteer rebate program, volunteers receive a rebate for the current season.

Volunteers make the

world go round!

Our Senior Volunteers of the 2022-23 season were Katrina Wilson and David Hopkins.

Congratulations to both of you! Very Well deserved!

Katrina is the Treasurer for the club and helps with the management of the MLB Cafe. These are just two of the many hats Katrina wears at Padres!

Hoppy was our groundsman and coached numerous teams at Padres throughout the years. He lives, eats and breathes baseball. We worry about him in the off-season!

Our Club Person for the 2022-23 season was Chris Coppleman.

Thank you and congratulations Chris!
