A Club with Heart is a club that strives for competitive greatness. It wants to perform at the highest level and win, but it achieves this by firstly creating an environment of respect, support, care and resilience for its local and wider community.
A Club with Heart aspires to create a new ERA through Education, Responsibility and Accountability. The club leadership team recognises the critically important role it plays in shaping the futures of those in the club community. It recognises that to affect these life changing impacts it needs to be courageous, resilient, respectful and connected, both on and off the field.
We would recommend that you select a group of 4-8 likeminded people of influence to participate and commit to the next available Clubs with Heart webinar series. Contact SALT, register your interest and leave the rest to us.
The Clubs with Heart webinar series is 6 sessions of 60 minutes conducted over 6 weeks.
Clubs are encouraged to invite 4-8 people from administration, operations, coaches, players or emerging leaders to participate in the series, recognising that it takes engagement with a range of club stakeholders to develop the focus and enthusiasm to become a Club with Heart.
There is no doubt that commitment is required. Apart from the webinar series, there are activities and conversations that need to occur between sessions. We estimate that this requires an additional commitment of 10-15 hours over the 6 weeks.
We understand that life often gets in the way of these types of activities and though we would like everyone to be involved the entire time, this might not be possible. After each session we provide summary notes via our Club Pulse Newsletter and can, if needed, provide a copy of the webinar for people to listen to in their own time. Having said that, we strongly encourage participants to be wholly dedicated to the process.
You will find an electronic form on this website. Fill out your details and we will be in touch shortly.
The Club with Heart process will begin the process of change but the implementation of the CWH model will require ongoing effort and enthusiasm. If you invest in a SALT membership, we will help you to design the strategy, set up the structures, implement the education and shape the culture over the following 2 years.
Some clubs have deeply ingrained attitudes and behaviours that are hard to shift. They could be about respecting diversity, misuse of alcohol, hyper-masculinity, cliques that perpetuate negative behaviours, lack of care of volunteers and much more, including poor leadership. Becoming a great club requires courage and commitment to an ideal and never compromising in the execution of the vision.
Yes. If you decide to become a SALT Membership club, the Clubs with Heart development process and webinar series is included in the membership.
It is a $1000 per club to enrol in the webinar series, but occasionally a sponsor, such as our major sponsor, Bendigo Bank, will provide funds for your club to attend. In this case, it would be a nominal fee for your club to be involved.
Yes. The Clubs with Heart measurement system is managed by SocialSuite. At the beginning of the process, we capture a range of data points as a baseline, addressing 4 key areas of club performance (knowledge, skills, structure, and culture), against which we have assigned 18 questions as the basis of successful measurement of outcomes.
You will be invited to continue working with us to implement the areas of growth that you will have identified as necessary during the seminar series. This may be through a membership package or through individual education units.
Yes. We will provide you with a certificate to say that your club has completed the webinar series and that you are a club that is committed to becoming a Club with Heart.
Every Community, Every Club, Everyone.
Become a Club with Heart over the course of 8 Webinars, where key people in your club will learn a new blueprint for the future of your club.
