With nearly 5,500 sports clubs in Wales and around 250,000 of
the Welsh Adult population volunteering in sport in some capacity,
there are a lot of people helping to make Welsh sport tick. Whether
it's as committee members, coaches, officials, people running
physical activity clubs or washing the kit, there is a host of jobs
that need to be done to make sure people can enjoy sport.
But, we're often told that club volunteers don't know where to
go for support and when they do get support it might not be exactly
what they need.
So after talking with many people in Welsh sport, we've
developed Club Solutions - an online resource giving sports club
volunteers a 'one stop shop' to help them start up, grow or improve
The Club Solutions website provides club volunteers with a
learning tool and access to guidance to deal with issues they may
Whether you're looking to set up a new club or grow your
existing club, there is something for everyone.
Easy to use and navigate, with jargon free language, there is
material to download, best practice stories to view, as well as
quality guidance to help you. There's also a club assessment tool -
a bit like a health check - to help you identify your strengths,
weaknesses and areas of improvement.
