Joining a sports club committee can be one of the most rewarding things a person can do.  It can also be one of the most daunting and challenging if you don’t get the training you need when you start the role.

This 4-week webinar training course will provide you all the information, practical tools and a step by step methodology you need to be a very successful committee member, confidently and easily.

Webinar 1: So you’re on the committee now what?

This is a session designed to guide participants through the following:

  • Great clubs have strong leadership, a great culture and sustained success. We consider what this means in a community club perspective and how they can be achieved.
  • Learn the responsibilities and behaviours of successful committees
  • Legislative and financial management responsibilities
  • Process of introducing yourself into the role and understanding the information you need to get access to
  • The characteristics of successful clubs – we have identified the characteristics of successful clubs. We share this secret framework by which all successful clubs are built.

Webinar 2: How to create a culture of volunteering at your club:

In this webinar, we show you how to achieve the goals of your club by creating a culture of volunteering.  This is our most powerful session and is always club changing:

  • Consider the barriers which stop people from volunteering
  • Underpowering the power of goal setting
  • Learn the “4 step process” to introduce a culture of volunteering, where everybody in the club is contributing in a small way to the club goals (including your club)

Webinar 3: Harnessing the power of communication and social media in your club:

This is a vital session for new committee members to learn the importance of strong and effective communications strategies.  This session includes:

  • The secrets of successful sports club communications
  • How to harness the power of club communication
  • Social media strategies for sports clubs
  • Why live streaming will be so important
  • How to create an awesome website and email newsletters

Webinar 4: Recruiting and developing participants and coaches in a changing world:

The world is changing rapidly, especially how we now want to participate in sports.  This session is vital for preparing your club for the future while ensuring you have enough participants and coaches today.

  • Understand how community sports participation has changed dramatically in the last five years and what this means for your club
  • Understanding the committee’s role in player, participant and coach development
  • Strategies to recruit players and coaches to your club

Meet your presenter:

I was you.

I’m Steve Pallas, founder of Sports Community.

At 20 years old, I was “elected” to 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.

Many years later I became the CEO of our local football/netball league and as I worked closely with the 35 clubs in the league I realised 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, QLD and Western Australian Governments, QLD Rugby league, Cricket Australia, Gliding Australia, Karting Australia and Table Tennis Victoria.

Through this journey, we have worked with 1000’s of clubs, not only sharing our knowledge and experiences but learning from clubs and volunteers.   Every day we see volunteers do amazing things, come up with amazing ideas and overcome the most challenging of obstacles.

Our passion at Sports Community is to make it easier for sports club volunteers.

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.

Your questions answered:

  • What if I miss a session?

No worries!  We will send you a recording after the session so you can catch up on all the secrets you’ve missed, at a time that suits you!

Where do I attend the webinar?

You can attend the webinar from anywhere in the world, as long as you can access an internet connection to log on.

  • What if I have questions?

We have a chat function open during each session allowing you to communicate in real-time with our presenter.

  • What kind of clubs is this for?

All sporting clubs!  No matter how big or small or what sport, you will be able to apply these principals to your club!

  • I see you are in Australia, I’m not, will this webinar series still be relevant to me?


We have worked with clubs across the world and have found the challenges have been very much the same, as have the solutions.

  • Can you help me explain this to my club committee?

Of course!  We understand purchasing on behalf of your club may mean speaking at a committee meeting.  If you need our help, let us know!
