Activity: This is the type of club it is, here you can choose from a list of different sports and subjects

Gender: Which gender students are eligible to take part, please note this will limit which students can book on and that you can add to the register. Once you have activated your club you won’t be able to change the gender.

Leader / Coach: Only staff members with a coach role can be added here
