South Coast Cycling club has been rewarded for its hard work by becoming the first SA cycling club to achieve STARCLUB ‘Recognition’ in SA, through the Office for Recreation and Sport’s STARCLUB Club Development Program.
This has been achieved with the assistance of Hans Van Bavel, Office for Recreation and Sport STARCLUB mentor – and hard work and dedication to the program from Catherine Braithwaite (SCC Committee member) Ken Gooding (SCC Committee member) and the SCC committee members.
There are currently 46 clubs around South Australia that have achieved this status so it is a massive achievement for South Coast Cycling club and something to be commended.
A STARCLUB is a well-run club where quality coaches and officials work alongside valued volunteers in a safe and welcoming environment.
Having well run sporting clubs is such an important asset for the local community and SA Cycling and the wider cycling community. South Coast cycling club provides wonderful opportunities for participation in sport, physical activity, and personal development, as well as providing social connections for young families.
Sport serves as a catalyst for community gatherings, bringing people together for play, talk and shared experiences and this is very evident at South Coast Cycling clubs summer track racing and training sessions held at Edwardstown Velodrome which contributes to the development of strong, connected communities.
South Coast Cycling has developed a strong volunteer base of officials and coaches to help ensure we can offer valuable cycling events and training sessions where there is strong support from local cyclist, club coaches, parents and families.
SCC has a Club Handbook for track cyclists to assist riders, parents and supporters, as well a clear strategic plan to help guide the future of the club and ensure its sustainability. The club has adopted a range of policies and procedures which help to make the running of the club as smooth as possible as well as ensure a safe, welcoming and friendly environment.
