  • The club will be linked with trained coaches who can deliver the programme
  • Promotion during and after which is good advertisement for the club in the community

Benefits for clubs:

  • Revenue stream
  • Increase in life-experienced members with different skill sets.
  • Can maximise use of club equipment with off-peak hours use. eg weekday
    office hours.
  • Pathway for members to move into coaching.

Once you send in your expression of interest, we will be in touch shortly about setting up the programme.
