Glasgow Fever: Where people make the game

This is the title of the presentation that Adrienne Hunter, Founder, Chair and Head Coach, Glasgow Fever Basketball Club will be giving at the Enterprise and Collaboration in Community Sport in Scotland which takes place at Murrayfield on 4th December.

This is a one-day event focussing on how Scotland’s community sports providers can benefit themselves and their communities by developing and delivering innovative and enterprising programmes.

This event focuses on how to deliver great, sustainable community sport without compromising your sporting and community objectives. It will highlight best practice and provide thoughts, tools and to-dos on how you too can become a sustainable community sports provider.

Delegates will come from community sports clubs, Community Sport Hubs, governing bodies of sport, local authorities, community sports trusts at our professional and semi-pro clubs, informal sports providers, community sports enterprises, sports governing bodies, community groups and other community sports providers.

Glasgow Fever was founded in 2010 with an initial focus on providing more opportunities for women and young girls to get involved in the sport, as players or in an official capacity.  In that short time, the club has gone from strength to strength, evident not only in our on-court successes, but also in our ever-expanding membership base. Our unique club ethos, prominent in everything we do, is to promote positivity and respect for players and officials at all levels, as well as an understanding that success is not just about what happens on the court.

Starting as a team of 10 senior women players we have now increased our membership by over 1000% and include a range of playing and training opportunities.  This presentation will focus on the learning we’ve taken from the last 4 years and how we will move forward and continue to grow and develop.  Key themes will include how we create the right environment for growth, how we develop great people, our strong community focus, maximising investment and Glasgow Fever – the social side!

Adrienne Hunter has been volunteering in sport for over 20 years taking on numerous roles.  In her professional time she is the owner and Lead Consultant of SEE Consultants who specialise in the development of coach and volunteer education and development working with a range of governing bodies and organisations.
