Sports Club Development Evening  –  ‘Club Structures-Building your club for Success’

Based on club feedback our next Active Calderdale Development Evening is ‘Club Structures-Building your club for Success’. We work with many clubs in Calderdale, some starting up as new, some looking for the best way to structure financially and some clubs wanting to merge to create umbrella multi-sport clubs. We are putting on this free course to support clubs on that journey.

The workshop takes place on Thursday 27 February at MBI Shay Stadium, 6pm-8:15pm. Please see below for full details.
