Starting a new club?

Here is a brief outline of things you need to consider:

You will need an executive board (the decision makers). It may be as few as one or two members running the show but as you grow larger you may need to share the workload. Your executive may look something like this:

President – Vice President – Secretary – Treasurer – Membership Coordinator

Other necessary roles include, having a trained safety officer and a trained judge for conducting practices and holding shoots (if your club chooses to do so). If you have a junior program you need to consider coaches – NCCP coaches clinics are available to members interested in becoming coaches.
