Free Business Training for Sports Clubs
 31st May 2012

The Club Leaders Learning Bus is coming to Kendal!!!!!

What is Club Leaders?
The Club Leaders project aims to train and support leaders of sports clubs in the business of running a club.  This national project is part of Sport England's Places People Play Olympics Legacy programme and is completely free of charge.  The overall aim is to help sports leaders become more successful and sustainable.

When will the project start?
The project was officially launched in Westminster on the 15 May 2012.  Training will be delivered to clubs using the following channels:

A dynamic Club Leaders online site with e-learning, discussion forums, news, events and much more;
Face to face seminars led by subject matter experts across the country;
One-to-one mentoring to focus on those clubs most in need to get them on the right track; and
The "Learning Bus" will be touring the country so the programme can focus on real people, in their own environment, addressing their specific needs.
What Training will be delivered?
Following the results of our research phase, we will initially be providing training in:

Business and financial planning;
Governance; and
Facilities management.
Further modules in these areas and other areas of identified need are currently being developed based on demand and are scheduled for launch over the course of 2012. We will also be sign-posting to other relevant content from existing programmes such as runningsports.

When will the Learning Bus be visiting?

Kendal Judo Club, LA9 7EN on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st June between 12.00pm and 7.30pm each day.

What will happen on the day?
Firstly there is no need book your visit, the doors are open to all and we would be delighted to welcome you on board where you will be able to:

Find out more! - By speaking to our Club Leader trainers about the project including how you can get involved in seminars and apply for our mentoring scheme.
Have a go! - You are welcome to come on board to make use of the 14 computers (2 for disabled users) to see what is on offer or take one of the e-learning modules there and then.
What Next?
Please register on the Club Leaders website  This is central to the project and will give you access to e-learning, discussion forums, news, events and much more!

This is an exciting project that can benefit your club and help you make sense of sports administration. We look forward to seeing you on the Learning Bus!
