Are you:

  • Struggling to raise enough funds for your club?
  • Tired of the same events year after year?
  • Sick of doing hours of work for very little payoff?
  • Looking for more help?

Do you:

  • Feel like you are always asking the same people for money?
  • Want new event ideas?
  • Want to know how to SAVE YOU TIME
  • Want to know how some clubs raise huge amounts and seem to find it easy.

We can help you!


Working with thousands of clubs, we have seen the constant challenges at sports clubs to raise funds, and the burnt-out volunteers.  Over the years we have also seen the incredible fundraisers, the volunteers with enough help and support to make it easy and the excitement for all at amazing events.

A great example is a regular country sports club that raised ONE MILLION DOLLARS with one raffle!  Yep, massive!

From all of these experiences and conversations, we have learnt the secrets.  What works, what doesn’t, and how to ensure your success.

This training will not only pass on knowledge, but will leave you feeling motivated and clear on the direction for your club’s fundraising.

We will provide you with the practical steps and real life examples to save you time and allow you to make the right decisions, the first time.

What is included?

4 X one hour live, interactive, webinar training sessions.  These sessions can be viewed from anywhere you are in the world, as long as you have access to an internet connection!

During the webinars, you can ask questions and contribute to discussions.

Who is Sports Community?

I was you.

I’m Steve the founder of Sports Community.

At 20 years old, I was given the role of secretary at my cricket club. I thought it would be a walk in the park. I was wrong. Very wrong.
I soon discovered I was in over my head, with no idea what to do, no support and no resources to help me.

I felt hopeless, embarrassed and alone.

After holding the position of “world’s worst club administrator” and learning a lot, I moved into other positions within the club from president to coach and everything in between.
I then became the CEO of our local football netball league and continued to volunteer at clubs for 25 years.
A focus for me was ensuring every new volunteer to our club didn’t feel the lows I had.

In 2012, I realised, after running workshops with hundreds of volunteers across many different sports, that it wasn’t just me who had encountered this awful experience stepping up to help my club, but in fact, it was a grassroots sport wide problem.

This was when Sports Community was born.

Since 2012 we have worked with peak sporting bodies and government organisations of all sizes, including; the ACT and Western Australian Governments, QLD Rugby league, Cricket Australia, Gliding Australia, Karting Australia and Table Tennis Victoria, and learnt more about sports clubs, their volunteers and what our community needs, than ever before.

There is not a problem we haven’t seen or worked with a club to solve.

It is what I have committed my life to.

My promise to you and your club is that our Sports Community family is the place for you.
It is the support you and your volunteers need, and we are in it together.
