Continuing our move towards providing clubs and individuals with Self-Help materials to tackle problems in a club such as recruiting new members. Club Matters is a Sport England partner organisation and provides a range of services for many different sports, including crown green bowling. Today we look at free 2-hour workshops where you can acquire new skills through a regimented approach to tackling any internal problems or aspirations.
Club Matters workshops are short training sessions, funded by Sport England and delivered across the country by Club Matters facilitators in a range of specific topics. The sessions will develop your skills, improve your knowledge and ultimately help you develop your club. They are for groups of at least 4 clubs and build upon the content of the online resources, but also include case studies, topical issues, exercises and a discussion section.
The workshops typically last approximately 2 hours and like all Club Matters support, workshops are open to anyone involved with a community sports club. The topics covered will mostly be relevant to those who have responsibility for, or involvement in running their club, either now or in the future. We encourage more than one person from a club to attend so that knowledge and business skills can be shared within their club.
Given the latest Government advice, it comes as no surprise that we have paused all face to face Club Matters workshops until further notice in light of the current situation with Covid-19. During this challenging time for our clubs and workforce, it is really important that we continue to offer support and training. We are therefore delighted to be able to offer the suite of Club Matters workshops through virtual classroom sessions. These workshops will continue to be 2 hours long.
