ClubHub is an online membership management system developed by an industry leading provider, supported by a comprehensive set of ‘how to’ guides covering all aspects of running a rowing club
ClubHub is being developed as part of our work to support rowing clubs in new and more meaningful ways. ClubHub will be available to all clubs as a benefit of their affiliation to British Rowing.
The vast majority of community clubs are run by a core of dedicated and passionate volunteer administrators and coaches, for free, in their spare time. The message from them is that running a rowing club these days is increasingly like managing a small business. Rowing clubs now require a similar level of knowledge, time and effort in order to be successful, which is where ClubHub can help.
ClubHub is formed of two core areas that will help the dedicated volunteers running rowing clubs in a more effective and efficient way:
- An online club member management portal, designed to reduce the overhead and effort involved in administering club membership, and all the processes and financial transactions that go with it; and
- A package of ‘how to’ guides to running a rowing club, with best-practice, contemporary guidance on all aspects of club operations, especially from a business perspective.
The online club member management portal is being designed to make it easier and more efficient for clubs to manage their own membership. It will streamline processes and financial transactions associated with member management. Not only will this help to manage increasing demand from new members but also ensure that clubs are able to provide current members with the best possible support.
ClubHub Guides will be a comprehensive set of ‘how to’ guides covering all aspects of running a rowing club. The Guides will include expert advice on specialist areas such as employment, tax, facilities management, tenure, health and safety, volunteer and community engagement and marketing, amongst other things.
The first phase of ClubHub will go live in Summer 2018 with a number of pilot clubs, with a full roll-out to all British Rowing affiliated clubs later in 2018.
We will be providing updates on a regular basis in the run up to this via the Club Stream, which is sent to all club secretaries as listed in the club administration system. In the meantime, if you have any questions about ClubHub please feel free contact us.
