- New online resource for community sports clubs, their players and volunteers
- Every Club Hub provides resources to help clubs with finances, grant applications, social media and many other tasks
Grassroots sport and recreation clubs throughout Western Australia now have access to a comprehensive online resource offering instant access to resources, support and guidance to help volunteers run their local teams.
The Every Club Hub, launched by Sport and Recreation and Volunteering Minister Mick Murray today, is a one-stop shop for the State's 5,500 community sporting clubs and their volunteers.
Featuring everything from guides to running club finances, writing grant funding applications, and running a social media account - the Every Club Hub provides guidance on the many tasks club volunteers need to manage.
It was developed following State-wide consultation with 760 clubs and 92 local governments, with strong representation from the regions.
Face-to-face focus groups also took place with 47 of WA's State Sporting Associations, nine Regional Sporting Associations, and representatives from 87 metropolitan and regional local governments.
The Every Club Hub is one of the four key initiatives of the McGowan Government's Every Club program, which has also delivered funding, training and networking opportunities to support WA's sport and recreation clubs.

Comments attributed to Sport and Recreation and Volunteering Minister Mick Murray:
"Western Australia's sport and recreation clubs are run by thousands of enthusiastic volunteers, passionate about what they do and always looking for ways to improve.
"By providing an extensive range of club management resources - online and free - volunteers for the first time have a one-stop shop to access information they want, when they need it.
"We have had extensive feedback at community level that many volunteers didn't know where to start when trying to access information. The Every Club Hub provides the solution.
"Whether a club volunteer wants to learn more about ways to fundraise, how to bookkeep or ways to attract new members - the Every Club Hub is there to provide that information."
