JJ Killian is a former army officer, businessman and organisational management consultant who has been involved in sport and sports clubs all his life. His on-pitch activities have always been mirrored by an involvement in the administration of the same clubs. This sports administration involvement has been matched by many years of service on Boards of Directors, National Councils, Boards of Voluntary Organisations and other committees.


Sports clubs and voluntary organisations, in many cases, have become large and complex entities with strong membership numbers and significant budgets. Yet they are still operated by people who are essentially volunteers and, although they do so with the best motivations, far too often they are not equipped to deal with many of the areas in which they are involved. 

IT’S YOUR CLUB!, based on many years of practical experience of club committees, boards of directors and national councils, addresses many of the situations that cause problems for the officers of such clubs. It covers all aspects of the administration that supports the operation of the various functions of the club, explaining aspects of committees and their roles, the roles of the main officers, the importance of governance, the advantages of strategic planning, how leadership and management play different roles and how current legislation, such as child protection, affects the modern voluntary organisation.

The political, economic and social environment in which sports clubs now operate has changed significantly and clubs need to adapt to ensure that they not only survive but are equipped to facilitate change and further development. IT’S YOUR CLUB! provides the definitive text on the leadership and management of sports clubs and will give club officers the confidence to make decisions vital to their club’s viability.
