School Holiday Program

Running a school holiday program or activity? Would you like to increase membership and promotion of your club & sport?  

We'd love to hear from you before December 18 2020.

Council would like to hear from Clubs, Associations, Community groups and Businesses. Anyone, who is looking to run a fun and active recreation program during the school holiday periods throughout the year and would like to promote their school holiday activity via the council website.

Don't keep it a secret - let us help you promote your holiday fun!

Would you like to join us?

Following on from the Club Check-in October 2020, it was clear from the data that many of you are concerned about your membership and player numbers going into 2021 and beyond.  This was for both summer and winter sports and young and old memberships?

For most, it was noted that both non-existent or dwindling junior player numbers as well as clubs struggling to fill senior teams was a concern.

Wakefield Regional Council is able to offer  sport and recreation clubs, groups and businesses a helping hand by providing an opportunity to get involved in the "School Holiday Fun Program" focusing on children (8-12yrs) and youth (13-18yrs).

So how we can help you?

The program is an online website administration support tool to assist clubs, groups and businesses to promote holiday programs and activities across the region and beyond.  The program aims to excite and invigorate interest and membership to your club and to help increase financial capacity. We support you with administration and promotion, leaving you to run your activities and increase your capacity.

In the first instance, to assist you, we need to collect some further information from you via an online "Expression of Interest Form".

In completing the form you can let us know if your club, group or business:

  1. Is  running a holiday program, workshop, clinic, fun day, activity etc. December 2020-January 2021
  2. Would like to run a school holiday session in 2021/22?
  3. Not sure if this is suitable for your type of club or activity?
  4. Want to get involved but will need some support?

What if you think this doesn’t apply to your activity?

Interestingly, the club check-in revealed that over 33% of sports surveyed currently do not have members under the ages of 18yrs. And nearly all clubs recognised that younger people were required to grow their clubs, stabilise their membership and are the future. So, if this is your club-  let’s discuss the program by dropping us a line via the expression of Interest form and tell us about the future of your club and how we might help you?

Let’s have fun - together!
