'Governance' refers to the rules and regulations used to run a club or league. It is a key factor in an organisation’s ability to run effectively and safely. The areas involved include planning for the future, setting your organisational values, financial controls, policies and decision making. These tasks often fall on volunteers from within our playing community, and this guide is designed to support those involved with the necessary tools and resources.

Our relationship managers can support you with:

Building effective committees – Whether it’s advising on potential club structures, role descriptions for committee members, or an introduction to a club or league with a similar approach, your Relationship Manager can support you in building a strong team.

Protecting your organisation and players through clear policies and procedures – We can provide you with templates for constitutions, advice on good practice, and share BaseballSoftballUK policies and procedures for your organisation to adopt and keep your membership safe.

Identifying and managing risks associated with operating your club/league - An important part of the long-term sustainability planning. Your relationship manager can provide you with a risk register template, help you identify any major risks involved in operating your organisation and help create plans to mitigate against them.

Answering your affiliation and insurance questions – We are developing a Frequently Asked Questions resource to try and help all of your insurance related enquiries. You can also find some general information on BaseballSoftballUK and the British Softball Federation’s insurance in the Insurance section of our website or contact your relationship manager for more information. For queries about baseball insurance policies, please refer to the baseball governing body that your club affiliates to, as insurance is handled directly by them.
