Club support and training

A new way to support clubs

Frankston City Council has partnered with Sports Community, a leading provider of training and support services for the grassroots sports sector, to provide Frankston City sporting clubs and their volunteers’ free access to a wide range of support and training resources.

Clubs and their volunteers have been given a free membership to Sports Community’s Club Spot, an online library of resources specifically created for grassroots clubs and their volunteers.

Club Spot membership includes templates, videos, articles and checklists on topics vitally important to clubs and their volunteers. Topics that clubs can access include how to run an AGM, how to write a sponsorship proposal and how to win grant funding.

If you’re sports club would like to learn more about Club Spot, contact council’s recreation team  on 1300 322 322.

Gender Inclusive Sporting Club Toolkit 

Launched on International Women’s Day, Frankston Council’s new ‘Gender Inclusive Sporting Club Toolkit’ has been developed to assist clubs in evaluating how welcoming and inclusive their club is for women and girls. The toolkit provides details of the resources available to clubs to help integrate positive change and helps identify key actions clubs can undertake to implement small but powerful changes on the path towards equality. 

Club committees are encouraged to use the toolkit which includes a ‘Self-Assessment Tool’, an ‘Action Plan Template’ and ‘Supportive Resource’ to identify their current strengths and weaknesses and highlight potential areas of improvement.
