Key Governance Documents & Templates
All clubs and associations that wish to affiliate to Snowsport Scotland must hold the following governance documents for which we provide templates:-
For guidance on writing these documents please see below
CONSTITUTION: A clubs constitution is a permanent written record of its purpose, structure, committee, products and organisation. All clubs should have a written constitution which should either be published on their website, or if they do not have a website, at least be stored in a form that can be accessed by members for reference. The constitution is usually drafted by the committee and agreed by all members at an annual general meeting. It should be regularly reviewed and updated as necessary for adoption at the next AGM.
Before you start writing your constitution you should be clear on your purpose, legal structure, committee, products and organisation.
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
The GDPR governs how organisations use personal data and increase the protection of individual’s privacy. For further guidance on the implications of GDPR for your club please download and read the GDPR – club briefing paper prepared by Harper Macleod LLP, on behalf of sportscotland, to support sports clubs.
Anti-Doping and Clean Sport (For performance clubs only)
UK Anti-Doping is an active participant in the global fight against doping in sport – and is the national body responsible for creating a UK-wide environment of confidence in clean sport. Clubs must ensure that they comply with UK Anti-Doping, to access more information about what is required of Coaches, Parents and Athletes please click on the links below:
