Developing stronger clubs and engaging local communities

This is the title of the presentation that  Colin Hutchison, National Development Manager, at Bowls Scotland and Tom Hamilton, Volunteer Development Officer and Club Coach at Woodend Bowling Club, Glasgow 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.

This presentation will cover on how following on from Glasgow 2014 and with a strong emphasis across sports on increasing participation we will shift focus to the infrastructure Bowls Scotland is implementing to enable future growth in the sport. In partnership with Woodend Bowling Club we will demonstrate the power of engaging with your local community, the benefits of utilising social media and the role of clubs in changing mindsets.
