  • Activity/playing programmes - this includes, for example, coaching qualifications required, insurance and coach to participant ratios
  • Duty of care and welfare - appropriate risk assessments, health and safety policies, training, compliance and child protection policies
  • Knowing your club and its community - this ensures that your club is committed to fairness and equity in respect of the way in seeks to attract and retain members from your local community
  • Club management - which covers issues to do with club and committee structures and the general running of the organisation
