The "off pitch" management of a community club can be a daunting task. The decision whether to register as a limited company, charity or Community Amateur Sports Club requires careful consideration. Ensuring the club has the correct insurance cover, complying with Health and Safety legislation, applying for planning permission and funding and so on are time consuming and sometimes specialist tasks.
