Did you know that kids who participate in extracurricular activities are more likely to finish high school and attend college, perform better on tests, and have higher test scores? Creating a new club at your child’s school is a great way to help them develop personally while also expanding their interests. Furthermore, starting a club helps your kids build skills they will need as an adult and graduate with confidence. After all, according to research, “90 percent of career success is about having the right connections.” Starting a club isn’t always easy but it can be fun when you have support from other parents. Here are some things you should know before getting started with Clubhouse.
How To Start A Club On Clubhouse?
1. Find a sponsor
Find someone else at your child’s school who is interested in starting a club. Find out what they are looking for in a club and then ask if the two of you can start one together. You can also reach out to your child’s teacher to see if there is an existing club that could benefit from an expansion. The school may have a list of clubs that have been started recently or clubs that are currently being formed. If you don’t see anything, ask the teacher to put you in touch with someone who might be interested in starting a new club.
2. Get approval from the principal
Once you have identified potential sponsors, go to the principal and get his or her approval to start your club. If they say no, find another school where there is already support for your idea and try again at that school. Remember, having support from the principal will help you get all the resources and support needed to make your club successful!
3. Build Your Clubhouse!
Once you have approval from the principal, it’s time to get your club started! This is where you will need to use your creativity and know-how. You could start by planning a school event or hosting an open house for parents who are interested in your idea. You can also brainstorm about fun activities that the kids in your club could do together.
4. Get it off the ground!
Once you have figured out what kind of club you want to start and how you will go about doing it, it’s time to get started! The first step is finding out if there is already an existing club at your child’s school that might be interested in expanding into a team. If there isn’t one, then think about what kind of classes would be good for students who are interested in your idea and have fun doing those things together. For example: after learning how to cook muffins together, they could then sell their baked goods at school events (after getting permission from the principal) and split the profits with each other. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or complicated. You could have your club members make healthy snacks and then sell them at the school’s snack bar. Or, you could have your members make a video that shows how to do a fun new craft together.
5. Get the word out!
Once you have worked out what kind of activities you will be doing, it’s time to get the word out! The best way to do this is by creating flyers and posting them around the school (or even outside your child’s classroom door) that explain what your club is about, who is in it, and what they are going to do together. You can also create a website for your club where members can post pictures of their work and also share information about upcoming events in their club. You can even create an email list for people who are interested in learning more about your club as well as a Facebook page or Twitter account for your club!
Why Your Kid Should Join A Club
1. it’s fun!
Kids love being around other kids and having fun. Having a club where they can do something fun with their friends helps them to feel like part of a group and helps them learn skills, socialize, and play together.
2. it’s good for social skills!
It is important that kids learn how to interact with others in a positive way. Being part of a club that meets regularly teaches them how to make friends, share ideas, help each other out, and get along well with others.
3. it’s good for learning!
Learning is fun, and kids love to learn. Being part of a club where they can learn new things and get together with their friends helps them to explore new ideas and skills.
4. it’s good for mental health!
There are many benefits that come from joining a club, one of which is the sense of belonging that comes from being part of something bigger than yourself. Kids who are part of clubs tend to have more self-esteem, better study skills, and better social skills than kids who do not join clubs.
5. it’s good for growing up and learning to be a better person!
Being part of a club as a kid teaches kids how to be more responsible and mature. They also learn that even though they have certain interests and hobbies, they can also be interested in other things as well. Having kids in clubs helps them to better understand the importance of being kind to others, respecting the people around them, and making good decisions.
3 Things To Know Before Starting A New Club
It’s important that your club is something that your child will enjoy!
Ask your child what kind of club they would like to join and then make sure that you can help to make it happen. If your child is interested in a certain sport, ask if there are any clubs that meet in the area where they live or if there are other kids who play their sport who also want to start a club together. If you know of any other kids who play the same sport as your child, ask if they would be interested in joining you. If not, look for another way to get your child involved in their favorite sports!
It’s important that you have a good reason for starting the club!
Ask yourself why you are starting the club and what it is going to do for your child. Think about how the club will help them learn new things and how they will be able to learn things they might not have learned on their own, such as teamwork and leadership skills. Also, think about what happens when a group of friends gets together (such as playing video games or doing arts & crafts) so that you know why it’s important for them to start this new activity together!
It’s important that all of the kids who want to be part of this new club like each other enough!
If there are people in your child’s life who don’t want them to join the club, it’s important that you find out why they don’t want them to be a part of the club. If your child is friends with these people, you can talk to them and ask if they would be willing to help you start a different club. If not, look for another way that your child can get involved in their favorite activities!
Starting a new club is a great way for your child to develop leadership skills, network, and learn more about a specific topic. It will also give them something to be excited about outside of school. So, if your child wants to start a club, help them get started with Clubhouse today!
Q: What are the benefits of starting a new club?
A: Clubs are a great way for your child to learn new things and make new friends. It will also help them develop leadership skills and network with other kids in their community.
Q: How do I get started?
A: Start by filling out the Clubhouse form and then choosing the club that your child would like to join!
Q: Is it okay if my child doesn’t have any friends who play the same sport?
A: No! If your child wants to be part of a club, they need to find other kids who play that sport or hobby so that they can learn from each other. If there aren’t any kids in your area who play their favorite sport, you could ask other parents in your community if they know any kids who want to start a club! You can also check out our Meetup groups where you can find people with similar interests!
Q: How will this affect my child’s school schedule?
A: You should talk with the teachers at school about how this new club will affect your child’s school schedule. Most schools allow clubs during non-school time as long as they don’t take up too much time or interfere with class time. We recommend talking with the teachers at school before starting anything new so that you know what is expected!
