5-Day President Challenge

A lot of work is required to successfully manage a community sports club, and club Presidents know this all too well. One important task for all clubs is recruiting and retaining volunteers, and good volunteers are worth their weight in gold. With this in mind, the team at Sports Community have created the 5-Day President Challenge, which aims to assist community clubs to ingrain a culture of volunteering at community sports clubs.

If you are a President or member of a community sports club, and believe your club may benefit from this, you can visit the Sports Community website HERE for further information and to sign-up for the challenge.
