Club Experience for Young People

From our recent insight activities, we learnt so much about who young people are, what they want from sport and how important clubs are in their lives. Volunteers running clubs also told us that they need more support to make that experience as great as possible, to ultimately retain and attract new young people to sport and their clubs.

club-experience-posterIn partnership with Club Matters, we have developed a brand new workshop to support you to do that.  The workshop covers;

– Why delivering a great experience for the young people in your club is important

– How to listen to and respond to the needs of the people in your club and potential members

– What a great club experience looks like and how to deliver this consistently

The workshop is interactive and provides lots of very practical hints and tips that can be taken back to you club. It also provides an invaluable networking opportunity with other like-minded clubs in the area.
