Club user guide
The role of running of a sporting club or organisation is becoming more complex and demanding, especially for volunteer club administrators.
The club user guide is an easy-to-use reference put together to help sporting club organisers and busy volunteers tackle the ins and outs of running a club.
The club user guide contains information on:
- how to get funding
- how to be an effective club
- our sports policies
We hope you find the information useful and we would like your feedback on how we can improve the club user guides.
