In this edition Sport Wellington announce the latest intake of athletes as part of their 2017 Pathway to Podium programme and a look at a recent study which highlights the influence parents have on their children’s involvement in sport.

We also include a great story on how Martinborough FC realised the value of networking and establishing effective relationships in the recent formation of their Senior Club.

With a number of articles relating to parental involvement, behaviour, and support we encourage you to distribute the newsletter as widely as possible to promote discussion and awareness around these topics.

Xero Accounting

Is your Club using Xero? Are you receiving the 25% discount available for not for profit organisations? If not simply email the Xero billing team with your proof of not for profit status (Incorporated Society) to receive the discount.

If you are thinking of moving to Xero Accounting and are interested in trialing it, Xero provides a two-month trial.

Marketing Investment

Marketing is always a challenging area for Clubs and Relationship Managers are regularly asked ‘How can we look more professional? Who can help? And how much will it cost?’

If you are wanting to move away from old school clip art and word documents for marketing but don’t have someone with design skills in your Club its worth looking at a professional to help. Rimutaka GymSports recently published their Strategic Plan and wanted to make sure that it was presented with a professional look to share with stakeholders and members. They used a company (www.pink.co.nz ) and were very pleased with the end result.  They feel that the investment was well worth it.

If your club is currently looking at redesigning a logo, creating an advertising brochure, web design or maybe even just a business card then it could be worth considering investing in some professional support.
