What do sports club websites need?
4 September 2018
Sport has become a very popular past time here in the UK which means sports club websites are on the increase.
For many local clubs and organisations, creating their own sports club websites can be a daunting task. It’s often best to get some professional help. Sports club websites don’t have to be complicated, in fact, with CEBCreative they can be really simple for club members to use and manage.
Does your club need a website where you can reach out to existing and new members? You’ve come to the right place!
CEBCreative has created a number of sports club websites over the years which has allowed clubs to grow their membership and communicate more effectively with those members.
I offer packages to suit most budgets and can also take care of your hosting and SEO as well. CEBCreative is a one-stop solution for sports club websites.
Why does my sports club need a website?
The internet is now our number one method of communication and you can exploit this free resource by having a professional looking presence on the web. A lot of sports clubs won’t have a physical base (like a clubhouse or grounds) so a website can effectively become your shop window to attract new members. You can reach out to audiences outside of your local area whilst also ensuring you appear in local searches for sports clubs.
A website can be a brilliant communication tool for your current members too. With a bespoke WordPress website build, there is really no limit to the features your website can include so you can provide lots of exciting resources and tools for your members.
What should sports club websites include?
This will depend on what type of sports club you have of course but typically they will include things like:
- Membership Signup/renewal
- Training schedules
- Coach and committee information
- Latest news
- Social Feeds
A more specific example would be for a cycling club website who would typically include things like:
- Members Area (login required)
- Social Feed (Facebook)
- Membership Registration Form + PayPal Link
- Contact Form
- Embedded Garmin Courses
- Events Management + PayPal Link
- Kit Order (Bank Transfer)
- Subscription + PayPal Link
With WordPress being such a dynamic and flexible platform, the possibilities are endless.
