How-to – your grassroots resource

 

We’re launching How-to – a simple, free, online resource that will help grow grassroots sports clubs and groups across the country.

Recently, we asked community sports groups across the UK what they wanted to help build their clubs. The response? How-to – a unique resource that provides how-to guides, advice, hints and practical tips from clubs, for clubs!

From finding new volunteers and promoting your club to managing club finances, How-to has it covered. You can also find additional support from Sport England’s Club Matters↑ – a one stop shop for sports clubs. Club Matters provides free, convenient, practical resources to help you develop and run a sustainable club.

Join In’s CEO Rebecca Birkbeck said, “We work with thousands of grassroots sports groups every day, but it’s the volunteers within the clubs who are donating their time and building the clubs from within. We wanted to showcase these remarkable volunteers and use their success stories to inspire others looking for first hand advice and ideas.”

Thousands of local sports clubs and groups have already added their page on Join In. Here are just a few reasons why:
