Starting a Club

Planning is the key to a club’s health and long-term future. When forming a club, the following steps should be considered:

  • research and assess demand for the club;
  • think about how many potential members the club might have and where they will come from;
  • promote the idea of forming a club and raise awareness in the community;
  • call a public meeting;
  • set up an interim committee;
  • hold your first general meeting of the committee and potential members;
  • establish links with organisations that may be able to help you, like your local council or State Sporting Organisation;
  • consider any legal issues you may need to address before forming your club; and
  • advertise for members.
