Club Governance Structure

Our committee membership for 2021/22 was confirmed at the November AGM. Club governance revolves around three committees:

1. DCC CIO Trustees are responsible to the Charities Commission for club strategy, governance, financial health, and the built estate.

2. A Club Management Committee is delegated by the Trustees to run club operations and deliver the programme.

3. A Coaching Team coordinates coaching programme delivery
