Managing your cash flow is essential to your club's sustainability. Club Matters has created a new cash flow demo which provides an overview of what cash flow is and why it is so important for your sports club.
Club Matters has put together an A-Z of fundraising ideas which you can use to help raise money for your club. You can download it here. If you have any additional ideas, perhaps things which have worked for you in the past, then tweet @ClubMatters so they can add them to the list.
Adult Learn to Swim Workshop
The ASA would like to invite you to attend a FREE Adult Learn to swim workshop. The workshops will be held across the country and are completely free of charge to attend. Each event will host two workshops; the first is for teachers to find out more about how best to deliver adult lessons including adaptations, dealing with concerns, teaching tips and practices. The other workshop is for operators, managers and marketing departments to look at the best ways to timetable, promote and advertise adult lessons.
