Good, strong clubs are a collection of good, strong people.
Everyone involved understands their roles and responsibilities.
Teams are built by identifying and coordinating individual strengths and weaknesses.
Expectations are clear and performance is evaluated.
All staff and volunteer policies are clearly defined and communicated.
Professional development and certification is encouraged and rewarded at all levels.
Below are resources and information about best practices that will help USSA clubs meet these principles. For more in-depth access to these types of resources, as well as direct support, forums with other club leaders, resource sharing, potential deployment of Club Expert Consultants and other opportunities for developing your club, see USSA Club Certification.
