One-stop shop for clubs

Guardian Express - - SPORT - Visit

GRASS­ROOTS sport and recre­ation clubs through­out WA can ac­cess an on­line hub for re­sources, sup­port and guid­ance to help vol­un­teers run their teams.

The Ev­ery Club Hub, launched by Sport and Recre­ation and Vol­un­teer­ing Min­is­ter Mick Mur­ray on De­cem­ber 18, is a on­estop shop for the state’s 5500 com­mu­nity sport­ing clubs and their vol­un­teers.

It in­cludes guides on run­ning club fi­nances, writ­ing grant fund­ing ap­pli­ca­tions and run­ning a so­cial me­dia ac­count.

“WA’s sport and recre­ation clubs are run by thou­sands of en­thu­si­as­tic vol­un­teers, pas­sion­ate about what they do and al­ways look­ing for ways to im­prove,” Mr Mur­ray said.

“By pro­vid­ing an ex­ten­sive range of club man­age­ment re­sources – on­line and free – vol­un­teers for the first time have a one-stop shop to ac­cess in­for­ma­tion they want, when they need it. We have had ex­ten­sive feed­back at com­mu­nity level that many vol­un­teers didn’t know where to start when try­ing to ac­cess in­for­ma­tion. “Whether a club vol­un­teer wants to learn more about ways to fundraise, how to book keep or ways to at­tract new mem­bers, the Ev­ery Club Hub is there to pro­vide that in­for­ma­tion.”

The State Gov­ern­ment de­vel­oped the Ev­ery Club Hub fol­low­ing con­sul­ta­tion with 760 clubs and 92 lo­cal gov­ern­ments.

Sport and Recre­ation Min­is­ter Mick Mur­ray launches the Ev­ery Club Hub along­side com­mu­nity sport vol­un­teers Mandy But­ter­worth and Ed­die Wool­head, with ju­nior mem­bers of the Quinns Rocks Cricket Club Ava Wool­head, Holly Wool­head and Chloe But­ter­worth.
