Sporting clubs are a fantastic place for us to meet new people, form friendships and create and share experiences and memories with each other! However, like everything in life, sometimes problems can arise between people which can lead to further issues, preventing things from running too smoothly.

Conflict is something that isn’t unordinary and can happen within sporting clubs with the varying opinions and factors that can create tension between coaches, athletes and parents.

You may have parents arguing from the sidelines, coaches disagreeing with one another, athletes frustrated with their teammates; these are just some of the potential situations that can happen within your sporting club that can create conflict.

Your club may have experienced conflict in the past, yet you may not have known how to approach the situation which can cause your own issues and bring stress upon the overall state of the club.

To combat this, this Sports Community Webinar Series will provide you with all the information and knowledge you need to ensure if/when conflict occurs within your club, you have an understanding of how best to approach the situation to manage the conflict from escalating. This series will also provide an insight into creating an environment that promotes healthy relationships and protects the rights of everyone within the sporting club.

In this series, the following will be covered over the three sessions:

– Leadership + Culture = Success

– Setting expectations for behaviour

– Managing conflict for positive outcome

– Understanding member protection and child safety

– How to ensure your club actively promotes a safe environment

– How to ensure your club is compliant

– Understanding what risk means

– Identifying risks to assist with management

– Managing risks to benefit your clubs and members
