Your Club People

People are the key to the success of any club.

Whether helping to the run the club, taking part in the sport's activities, delivering coaching or any number of other tasks, having the right people in place generally means a healthier and happier club.

You should spend some time considering the following areas, how you manage each group and what else you can do to help develop them.

Groups to think about:

You need your members and participants to take part in the sporting and social activities at your club. This is where most clubs start, with a group of people coming together with a common interest or passion in a sporting activity.

You also need your volunteers and coaches, the people who make sport happen. Without this dedicated group of people who willingly give their time to enable others to play the sport they love, grassroots sport wouldn't exist.

It's important to remember that people in each of these groups may have different motivations for being part of your club and want different things from your club.
