Planning is crucial to the success of your Club and is one of the key responsibilities of the committee. It provides a ‘road map’ for where your Club wants to be and how it will get there. Good planning practices will assist your Club to achieve its goals and objectives.
There is no one perfect strategic and business plan template and there are many versions found over the internet, but two good places to start for further information and templates are:
NSW Government Office of Sport – Planning
Club Help – Strategic and Business Planning
Please also see a great example from a bowling club: Wodonga Bowling Club Strategic Business Plan
Sports Community Podcast: Brian Lucas. President of Sorrento Bowling Club on the importance of strategic planning for clubs.
