Clubs

Does your club:

  • Want to attract more participants?
  • Spend a lot of time “putting out fires”?
  • Want to attract corporate partners or new funders?
  • Need more volunteers?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, the Club Excellence program can help your club achieve its goals!

The majority of sport clubs in Canada are run by a volunteer board, whose limited time is focused on day-to-day operations. Some clubs are privately owned, leaving the responsibility for all operational aspects to a business owner. To be successful, both types of operations need to plan for the future and define their business processes, but too often these activities come second to daily operations and crisis management.

The community sport and recreation system is relying on clubs to be more self sufficient and self-sustaining, and to generate more of their own operational and capital resources. Clubs can no longer operate on good intentions and the availability of volunteers. Sport clubs must take a business approach to their operation.
