How To Start A Cove Club

How to start a Cove Club

by Dolphin Project Youth Ambassador Harry Morgan


  1. Make a name for the club (this can also be decided when the group is established)


  1. Choose when your club will meet


  1. Ask people to join your club – it’s a good idea to have an adult in the club so they can be a mentor


  1. Have your first meeting and make sure everyone is happy with the meeting time




  1. At the first meeting, vote on responsibilities and jobs
  • Captain/president
  • Vice Captain/Deputy
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Task specific leaders e.g. fundraising leader





  1. Choose a club logo and moto


  1. Decide specific tasks or action that the groups would like to do


  1. Work as a team, help each other and make sure everyone is involved


  1. Have fun




Important things remember:

  • At each meeting you should have an agenda. This is a list of items that the group is going to discuss. Using an agenda helps the group to stay on task.


  • Organise what you would like your club to be involved in. These could be writing letters to important people, fundraising or protests.


  • Use a calendar to plot important event or when things are due. The secretary can be responsible for this.


  • Social media is great to help you get your message out to the public. Your Cove Club can start a blog!


  • It is important to keep learning – keep reading books and finding out information so you can learn as much as you can and education others.
