Bar and Canteen

Bar and Canteen

Sports clubs engage the community at many levels, providing opportunities for children and adults to exercise, develop new skills, and to compete and socialise with others in their community.

The leadership strength of sports clubs allows them to reinforce healthy and respectful attitudes, social norms and behaviours. A canteen and bar is a vital role in any club. It sets the tone and cultivates an atmosphere.

A sporting club’s canteen and bar is usually one of the strongest fundraising instruments they have.

For entire seasons the canteen brings in a strong flow of funds each and every game day.

Taking the time to plan even the simplest of tasks will ensure your canteen and bar run smoothly

At the start of the year your canteen and bar manager should:

  • Decide on the core products they are going to sell during the year
  • The prices for those products
  • Create a running sheet for the days of operation identifying what roles are to be undertaken and when
  • A roster identifying how many people doing what roles are required at different times during the day
  • Undertake a stocktake of equipment to ensure everything is in order

The canteen and bar manager should ensure that they work with the committee and treasurer to the goals of the club are achieved and that all financial reporting is accurate.
