STARCLUB Club Development program
A STARCLUB is a well-run club where quality coaches and officials work alongside valued volunteers in a safe and welcoming environment.
The STARCLUB Club Development Program has been designed for use by sport and active recreation clubs of all sizes. The program is valuable whether you believe your club is already a STARCLUB or has some work to do.
STARCLUBs are also recognised by the government and other organisations that value the role well-run community clubs can play in our community.
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.
All of our clubs should be striving to achieve full STARCLUB status!
The City of Marion supports local sport and recreation clubs to become STARCLUB accredited. Visit the STARCLUB website for further details.
