Covid-19 Update: Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport have collated a dedicated resource to support clubs in identifying and engaging with support available to them. Please click here to be redirected to these resources.
Clubs are becoming more professional and better organised as they improve their performance and the service they provide for members. Some clubs are keen to recruit more members and expand while others simply want to consolidate.
Whatever stage your club is at, and wherever you are aiming to be, there are many resources that can help you. Including our Workforce Education Programme, which includes a range of courses aimed at supporting you to develop your Club.
