Club Matters understands that sometimes there is not enough time in the day to attend a session in person, as well as organise everyone's transport and manage individual timings.

We run two-hour training sessions, funded by Sport England, which are delivered across the country on range of topics. While the feedback on these has been great and the help provided has been extremely valuable for our members, we are aware that a large proportion of our members are missing out on these sessions.

We have therefore created our online training sessions, a quick and easy tool to help you run your club. By doing this we'll be able to cover a wider range of topics in a shorter period of time, giving everyone the chance of attending these online training sessions with no restrictions on location.

Check out our sessions on finance below.
