Active Black Country is always looking to provide support and develop clubs within the area.

We have a number of pages on our website which can offer this advice.

Additionally if you are unsure on some of the policies and procedures which your club is required to undertake such as DBS checks or gaining Clubmark accreditation we have dedicated pages to support you through this process.

Furthermore in 2013 Sport England launched a Satellite Club programme which aims to engage more young people in sport in a familiar and safe environment; further information can be found on the Satellite Club page.
