England Athletics have a dedicated team of Club Support Managers that can provide support and guidance to affiliated Athletics and Running Clubs. St Albans AC recently accessed support through Club Support Manager, John Harris by requesting help with retaining and recruiting volunteers.
John delivered a volunteer champions training session (funded by Spirit of 2012) attended by 13 club members, followed by a volunteer opening evening run by the club which was very successful in attracting new volunteers. John has subsequently supported the club by helping Rebecca Turford (England Athletics Education Co-ordinator) set up an in-house Coaching Assistant course attended by 16 people, and funding 2 places on the course.
