Administration and Management

A suitable structure is essential for any club to achieve success and continually develop. 

  • The introduction and implementation of a good committee is imperative as it ensures that not all work is left to one person but is managed and shared, ensuring more efficient running of the club.
  • The best way to start this is to involve as many people as possible in the administration of the club.
  • This will spread the workload out and avoid overburdening any individuals.

The role of the club administration and management is to:

  1. Manage the operation and affairs of the club
  2. Enhance the club’s activities by adopting proper policies and practices
  3. Oversee correct usage of club resources
  4. Implement a child safeguarding policy
  5. Develop a health and safety statement and policy

To achieve success a club must have:

  • Proper structures
  • Good coaching
  • A positive opening and welcoming attitude by all
  • Effective leadership
  • Proper delegation
  • Good teamwork
  • Child centred and athlete focussed environment
  • Correct financial management
