Is your club a STARCLUB?

A STARCLUB is a well-run club where quality coaches and officials work alongside valued volunteers in a safe and welcoming environment.

Clubs are able to measure themselves against STARCLUB criteria and get information and support to continue the development of their club to provide the best environment possible for their members and the wider community.

Why become a STARCLUB?

The STARCLUB Club Development Program has been designed for use by sport and active recreation clubs of all sizes. The program will be valuable for your club whether you believe your club is already a STARCLUB or has some work to do.

STARCLUBs will also be recognised by the government and other organisations that value the role well-run community clubs can play in our community.

STARCLUB criteria 

The STARCLUB online assessment tool contains 25 questions designed to find out areas of strengths as well as areas of improvement for clubs.

Once these areas are identified, Alexandrina Council will assist in the implementation of strategies and programs to support the development of your club.
