Sports Clubs

There are a number of local sports and physical activity clubs that you can get involved with in the Vale of Glamorgan.

 

There are lots of places to be active in the Vale including your local parks and green spaces, beaches, leisure centres, community centres and local community sports and physical activity clubs. If you are looking for a club to join (they cater for all ages and ability levels in the Vale) our handy guide can help you find the right one. Before you or your family members join a club, it is important to consider:

  • Do the coaches have appropriate qualifications?
  • Is the club affiliated to the correct National Governing Body of Sport?
  • Does the club have a Child Protection policy in place? 
  • Are coaches/volunteers required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check?
  • Are references undertaken for Coaches?
  • Does the Club have appropriate insurance?
  • Is there a qualified First Aider at the Club?
  • Is the activity being delivered appropriate to the specific needs of your child?
  • Please Note: The Sports Development Team has not vetted any of the organisations and it is your responsibility to ensure that the activity delivered is appropriate.

Setting up/Developing a Club

If you are setting up a club or want to further develop your existing club, the Sports and Play Development Team can assist you.

 

We can assist with areas such as Club Development plans, school-club links, promotion, funding and coach education.

 

Sport Wales have produced a useful website called Club Solutions which provides club volunteers with lots of information and templates to help with all areas of running a club. Whether you are looking to set up a new club or grow your existing club, there is something for everyone on this site. It is easy to use and navigate, with jargon free language. There is material to download, best practice stories to view, as well as quality guidance to help you. There is also a club assessment tool - a bit like a health check - to help you identify your strengths, weaknesses and areas of improvement.

Funding

Funding opportunities to assist with developing sports activities within the Vale of Glamorgan.
