Planning for your club

Why plan?

Whether at national, state or local level, organisations need to plan their long-term viability in order to grow.

Planning helps to:

  • look at where the organisation has come from, where it is now, where
  • it wants to go and how it is going to get there;
  • identify the main objectives of the organisation;
  • encourage the members to get involved in the development of the organisation;
  • adjust to changes in the current environment that have an impact on the organisation;
  • ensure that resources (human, physical and financial) are used effectively;
  • evaluate the organisation; and
  • bring order into the hectic business of running a sporting organisation.
