Club Matters - September 2017 update

Club Matters is Sport England's one stop shop for sports clubs. Club Matters provides free, convenient and practical resources to help you develop and run a sustainable club. 

This month we let you know about enhancing the club experience for young people, clean sport guidance for clubs, and supporting the European Week of Sport.

Click here to register for Club Matters so you too can benefit from the free resources available.

Enhancing club experience for young people

Young people are keen to develop their identities. They want positive experiences that are social, collaborative, rewarding and personalised. Sport Matters' new guidance provides an insight into youth personalities, which will help clubs create the best possible experience for them.

The support also shows clubs how to engage with young people in a way that's right for them, which is key to maintaining future engagement. Click here to start exploring the new material  and share it with your club.

Clean sport guidance for clubs

Club Matters has teamed up with UK Anti-Doping to bring guidance to sports clubs and promote clean sport. In this new section of the Club Matters website, clubs can find out what doping can involve, download resources illustrating a best-practice approach to anti-doping and access links to further support.

Supporting European Week of Sport

23rd to 30th September is European Week of Sport. This is a fantastic opportunity for clubs across the continent to come together and celebrate sport and physical activity. Club Matters will be supporting the campaign by using the #beactive hashtag on Social Media, and we hope you can do the same.
