All clubs are looking to recruit or retain in some way, whether it’s creating new teams, or to keep current teams at the club.

This page has some useful guides for clubs on how to recruit and retain players of all ages and genders.

School Club Links

For clubs with youth teams, or looking to start youth teams, our School Club Links Guide will walk you through the process, from coming up with what your club wants from the link, to approaching the school(s), and putting together an agreement.

A School Club Link can be made at any age group, and with any type of educational institution, from infant school, through to university.
