I was unsure whether this would be beneficial for me, for various reasons: I’m very busy and don’t need extra workload/stress. I was concerned it would be a lot of work, but the sessions are short and very useful, and I’m feeling more and more enthusiastic every week. I would highly recommend it to others, whether they think they need it or not.”

Our Club Renovation Toolkit gives your community group, sporting or recreational club the skills to reach your own inclusive goal, whether that is to connect with your broader community, create opportunities for specific demographics or even to grow your group’s membership.
Our 30-minute live webinar sessions are hosted by our knowledgeable staff and guest presenters and give you the tools to rediscover your foundations, attract new members through meaningful connection and ensure a successful future for your group is planned and sustained.
Outside of the weekly live sessions, the toolkit also includes bonus content such as recordings, video guides, practical worksheets and downloadable resources, to be used time and time again.
Renovators will have lifetime access to our online training, as well as the opportunity to join future rounds, ensuring your entire club can be up-skilled, no matter when others start their journey.
You are invited to join our closed Facebook group, where you can connect with other renovators to share questions, thoughts, ideas, and most importantly, successes, long after the completion of the live sessions.
Renovation Preparation – Pre Course
Once registered, you will be able to start immediately with our course introduction video and pre-course survey. The preparation stage will prepare you and your group for the full 8 weeks of the course and will help you to identify exactly what you want to achieve through the Toolkit.
Foundation Strengthening – Weeks 1 & 2
Discover potential partners in your community and how you can use these partnerships to your advantage while building the foundations of your inclusive goal through practical activities. Align your attitude, design your vision and find the perfect volunteers for the roles that may be on offer.
Growth and Attraction – Weeks 3 to 5
Build strategies to ensure your group can maximise its opportunities to grow. Watch as your membership demographics expand through the communication and promotional tools shared. We will provide practical tips on how you can develop professional marketing material that will make attracting new members even easier.
Retention and Sustainability – Weeks 6 to 8
Find out how to capture the long term benefits of your learnings. The final phase of our toolkit will give you the tools to ensure your members are members for life, helping your club connect and grow to be a pillar of your community. We will even show you how to simplify often daunting tasks and how to make the most of your volunteer’s time and energy.
Renovation Review – Post Course
We ask for you to complete a post-course survey to provide feedback on course content and suitability, as well as an opportunity for you to share your plans and ideas for the future of your group. Our team will collate both the pre and post-course survey responses and provide a report to funders on the findings, developments and outcomes.
Our graduation ceremony is an opportunity for you to join all course participants to come together to celebrate the outcomes from the Club Renovation Toolkit. This celebration event is open to all participating clubs and funders and will be held in the final week of the course.
