BAYSWATER Lacrosse Club has urged other clubs to join a free program to improve future planning and junior numbers.

The Halliday Park-based club has rejoined the City of Bayswater’s Blue Ribbon Clubs program this year after first taking part in 2017.

The educational program covers the areas of administration, future planning, community connection and working with children.

Club manager Margaret Morley said the program provided resources including working with children checks, volunteer management plan, a health club policy and financial planning.

“A resource we have identified in the program which will be of benefit to our club is the passport into schools,” she said.

“It is an excellent resource as our aim is to recruit more junior members in 2020 from local schools to enable us to implement our own Mod Crosse competition within the club.

“This could also quite possibly lead into an inter-school competition for local schools.”

Ms Morley said other clubs would gain benefits from the program as the City ran several club development workshops for members.

Mayor Dan Bull said the program was tailored to suit the needs and goals of each individual club.

“We are lucky to be home to a huge variety of sports clubs for all ages and the City is proud to be able to help these clubs thrive in any way we can,” he said.

“Through the Blue Ribbon Clubs program we’re helping local sport clubs master the essentials and reach their goals, making it easier for them to enjoy long term success in our community.”
