We are here to help

Our officers will support your club on a range of topics to help you build relationships and develop people in your organisation.

Here are a few things to consider when starting to engage your local community:

  • Does your club reflect the diversity of the local community?
  • How does your club welcome new and existing members?
  • Do you take your club out to events and community festivals?
  • Do you promote your club to schools through Active Schools?
  • Do you measure and celebrate the benefits your club is making within the community?
  • Do you have a list of local partners inside and outside sport that you have strong links to?
  • What are your community priorities?
  • Are your community priorities written down and shared with your members?
  • Does your club have a nominated person or sub-group that works on connecting with your community?
