Calderdale Club Development Evening

Posted on

Local sport and fitness providers – from clubs and gyms to small walking groups – are invited to a free workshop on Wednesday 24 February from 6pm to 8.30pm at The Shay Stadium, Halifax.

Sign up at www.wysport.co.uk/calderdale-clubs 

Held by Calderdale Council and West Yorkshire Sport the event aims to bring providers together to share resources, knowledge and facilities. The Council wants to learn more about the kind of support they need and how it can work with them to help people be more active more often.

Advice will cover funding, marketing, accounting, community amateur club status and club development support.

Increasing the amount of activities on offer across Calderdale is part of the Council’s drive to get people moving more – to live healthier, happier and longer lives and connect with other people.

People who don’t currently run a sport or fitness group but are keen to set up activities are also welcome to come along and see what support is available. Representatives from Calderdale Council, West Yorkshire Sport and North Bank Forum will be there to listen and give advice.
