Whether you have 10 members or 10,000 there is a section on the NSW Department of Sport and Recreation website that provides best practice guidelines, useful tips, suggestions, templates and checklists for anyone who wants to know more about how to run a club.

Establishing a New Club
A practical guide to help you effectively establish a new Triathlon Club.
TriNSW encourages all Clubs to become incorporated. The Associations Incorporation Act 1984 provides small non-profit community based groups with an easier and relatively inexpensive means of establishing a legal entity rather than forming a co-operative or a company.
Incorporation creates a legal entity that is separate to the individual members. Members of unincorporated bodies face the possibility of being sued as individuals. Incorporation provides a certain amount of limited liability for members, as long as they follow accepted business and community standards. Incorporation is voluntary.

TriNSW Club Grants Program
TriNSW believes very strongly in helping clubs develop a healthy future. Commencing back in 2008/09, we have budgeted $5,000 each and every financial year for Club Executive Development.
There are many courses available throughout the State for directors, club leaders and office-bearers to attend and improve their managerial/ administrative skills and club development attributes. These courses cost money (anywhere from $60-$120 per person per day). Examples of appropriate courses are: It’s Your Business; Member Protection; Working with Volunteers; Managing Conflict; Event Management in Sport; etc.
TriNSW offers a grant of up to $300 per TriNSW affiliated Club per financial year for nominated Club personnel to attend approved courses. The agreement will be dollar for dollar (ie the Club or individual pays half, TriNSW pays half). TriNSW will reimburse the Club after the course has been attended and completed.
Applications will be considered on a first-in, first-served basis. Applications shall close if and when the annual $5,000 allocated budget has been expended.
