What is ClubBuzz?
ClubBuzz is our new club management tool. It will help the club manage it’s finances smoother, help with planning sessions for the coaches and any additional admin meaning we can all play more volleyball.
Why do we have annual membership registration?
Having ‘proper’ membership and registration allows us to have a bit more structure. Up to date contact details mean you are not short of any club information and also means we have emergency contact details. Names of registered members are required for insurance purposes.
Why the annual membership fee?
Our move to Maiden Erlegh requires us to facilitate first aid equipment and training for our volunteer coaches. The membership fees contribute to this new requirement.
If I join or leave during the year do I still pay the full membership fee?
Depending on when during the year you join/leave, we may offer a discretionary reduced fee. Contact the treasurer to discuss.
If I join or leave during the year do I still have to pay over all nine months?
No. We only ask people to pay subscriptions when they are a registered member of the club. Contact the treasurer to discuss.
Approximately 10 extra indoor Team Training sessions – is that right?
I don’t play for a team. Does that mean my subscription pays for others to play in a team?
This really depends on your point of view. The subscription fees cover all match fees. If you choose not to play in a team then that is your choice. As outlined above, the subscriptions offered broadly match the take up offered over the last couple of years.
What is the absolute cheapest way to get my volleyball fix?
Become a full member, pay upfront and commit to coach some Club Nights.
I have another question that is not answered above; who do I ask?
