Club Development Scotland April Newsletter

Welcome to our April newsletter. 

It's been a busy few months for the Club Development Scotland team. Since our last newsletter, we've been continuing to work with a number of grassroots football clubs and more recently, supporting athletics clubs across the country with their incorporation and governance.  

As part of our commitment to helping grow sport clubs that win for everyone, we've continued to produce guidance documents, videos, blogs and podcasts (see below!). We develop these resources and guidance documents completely free of charge for clubs and hope those that feel they benefit from them can help us continue to produce more by becoming Patrons of our work. Become a Patron!

If you'd like to find out how we can support your club, please check out our services and don't hesitate to get in touch.

New Guidelines Published

Membership Development

In a community club, developing the membership is hugely important. Of course, the fees paid by members are a vital source of income, but the membership also provides the club with a wider network of people who may be willing to assist the club.

Legal Structures

One of the most important choices you will make when forming your sports club is which legal structure to adopt. Check out our guidance and a comparison of the options here. Please don’t hesitate to drop us a note to see how we can help you through the process.
