Club Development


Sport North Tyneside has development officers with expertise to support the growth and development of your sports club. We recognise that sports clubs are the life-blood of sport and have environments to engage people in life-long participation in sport which brings multiple benefits to society.

We can support your sports club with the following:

  • Funding – advice, guidance and support on applying for funding.
  • School-club Links – advice and support on linking your club with local schools.
  • Volunteering – advice on recruiting volunteers/coaches, qualifying and developing coaches.
  • Clubmark – advice, guidance and support on achieving Clubmark  status.
  • Development Plans – support with creating and writing your club development plan.

Sport England’s  campaign Club Matters provides free and practical help to those involved with a grassroots club.
