SMS Club Development Day, 3 November 2018

We are delighted to invite clubs to attend the SMS Club Development Day on Saturday 3rd November, at Blair Drummond Community Hall.

The Club Development Day ran successfully for the first time last year with overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees. The day intends to provide MSA and SACU clubs with a relaxed and informal environment to discuss current and emerging topics that are relevant to motorsport clubs’ growth and development. 

SMS staff and guest speakers will lead sessions on the day that aim to facilitate positive discussion amongst attendees and ultimately lead to everyone leaving the day with some new inspiration and ideas on how to improve their own motorsport club.

The day will include sessions on the following topics:

  • Esports: what is it all about and is it relevant to motorsport clubs? - Scottish E-Racer, Josh Martin, will speak to attendees about this new emerging digital version of our sport and there will be a discussion on how/if motorsport clubs can embrace this going forwards.  
  • Volunteer Development – this session will look at a new volunteer training programme piloted in 2019. It will challenge attendees to think about their clubs own vision for the future what is required of their volunteer workforce to make that vision a reality.
  • Club Development Workshop – an interactive session, that will cover a number of subjects that are relevant to club development – such Developing Partnerships and utilising the benefits of Social Media. Some current examples of good practice will be discussed for each subject and attendees will be encouraged to share their own experiences and how they may adapt their practice to adopt what’s been discussed going forward.  

All Scottish MSA and SACU clubs are invited to this event, although initially we would like to cap attendance to two delegates per club initially.

The day will start at 10:00 for a 10:30 start and will be finished by 16:30; a full event timetable will be shared closer to the time. The event is free to attend and lunch will be provided, as will tea and coffee throughout the day. 

To help us with planning, we’d appreciate it if clubs could confirm attendance with us before Friday 26th October. We’ll confirm final instructions and directions to confirmed attendees closer to the event.
