    • Council Relationship Advice

      Hey Everyone

      My local club has struggled over the years with the relationship with our local council and our committee was wondering how we could improve this. We all know the importance of local council when it comes to running our clubs, especially when it comes to the use of facilities.

      We are after ideas from other clubs and associations and what strategies work best when working with the local council?

      We were possibly thinking of having a person on the committee whose responsibility is to communicate with the council?

      Let me know what you guys think of this

    • Importance of Facilites

      As we know facilities for clubs are vital.  It is the first thing potential members see when looking for a club. Clubs don’t necessarily need flashy new rooms or lights, however well maintained facilities are important for a clubs success.

      Have a think back to when you were choosing a club. What was it that attracted to you the club? Would you have chosen that club if the facilities looked unsafe? Probably not.

      In the Facility Management section on Homeplate there are a number of resources for clubs such as processes to obtain funding for development of facilities and guidelines for Softball fields.

      Let us know about your facilities.

      What does your club have that others might not?

      What needs improvement and how can this happen?

      What has your club done in terms of facility management?

    • Encouraging volunteers

      What are clubs doing to attract volunteers? I recently read that the ASC found 23% of people aged 14-75 indicated that they would be likely or extremely likely to volunteer in club sport in the next 12 months. With that in mind, it’d be great to know what others have been doing to gain volunteers because there’s always room for more. Also, my club is quite small so it would be good to hear from others.

    • Benefits of the Club Health Check

      Myself and a few committee members recently completed the CHC for our club and have found it really helpful in identifying how we are performing as a club off the diamond and some key things we need to work on. Just curious to see how other clubs have found the Health Check? Also how is everyone else finding Homeplate? We have found some very useful resources to help develop a Strategic Plan, a Risk Management Plan, and position descriptions for some new committee positions. Look forward to seeing your comments!
