The Blacks Clubhouse

Welcome to the Clubhouse

It can seem overwhelming, however, AU Sport staff and the ‘Blacks Clubhouse’ are here to assist with all club management issues...and more!

There’s a lot of work involved in running a club, starting with organising the committee, coaches, officials, players and spectators. Then there’s the marketing and promotion of club activities, right through to the rules and regulations for AU Sport, your State Sporting Organisation, member protection and risk management but AU Sport is here to assist those managing sport clubs at the University of Adelaide.

AU Sport is committed to working with its clubs to be better managed and sustainable, whilst being able to provide quality services to members and participants. For staff to be able to assist members sitting on club committees, we do ask that you maintain a close liaison with AU Sport staff. This is generally done through the President, Secretary and Treasurer of the Club.

AU Sport is continually developing and updating resources, including advice, how-tos, checklists and templates, in order to provide guidance and assistance on everything, from starting a new club through to sponsorship, fundraising and marketing. The following provides information for club committees about the responsibilities involved in managing an AU Sport club. Many of them are mandatory for a club to be nominated for ‘Club of the Year’.
