Club Leaders is part of the Sport England Places People Play Legacy programme, and provides business training and support to leaders of sports clubs. British Gymnastics has provided input during the research phase and will continue this close relationship with Sport England and Pricewaterhouse Cooper as they progress into delivery stage to ensure the programme complements the support already provide to your clubs.
A key aspect of the programme is delivering a country wide mentoring scheme. This involves individuals with a business background, from PricewaterhouseCoopers and a range of the Olympic Partners, assisting locally based sports clubs become more successful by applying their business skills and expertise. Also being developed are Club Leaders Seminars, which are currently being piloted.
The programme has been formally launched in the House of Commons, and the Club Leaders website is live. The ‘Learning Bus’ that is being used to publicise the programme will also begin its tour of England.
