The Resource of the Month for June is our handy Strategic Plan Checklist Template. This resource was created to assist clubs on how to write a successful Strategic Plan.
Why have a strategic plan?
A strategic plan isn’t just a document to keep everyone on track.
Having everyone participate in the strategic planning process fosters collegiality and creates an opportunity for discussion on the direction of the sporting club, which is why strategic planning often results in cultural transformation.
Strategic Plans can be basic documents or comprehensive in nature, but the key to a good Strategic Plan is that it’s contents are relevant and embedded into club practice.
Our Policy of the Month for June is the Health & Safety Policy!
This month we look at why a Health & Safety Policy exists, and why every club should have one in place.
The Health & Safety Policy is to provide a safe and healthy sporting club environment for players, spectators, volunteers, coaches and officials nd other personnel who are involved with the activates of your Sporting Club.
This policy encourages everyone to take a role in accident / incident prevention.
Sports Clubs need recognise their legal, ethical and moral responsibilities to prevent any sport related injury and illness.
Clubs need to be committed to providing safe places of sport that do not place the health and safety of any person at risk.
Your Club needs to foster a positive club cultures across their operations where safety is considered to be a core value, safe environment to play sport.
Talk to us if your club needs assistance with a Health & Safety Policy or requires templates or resources.
