Local Clubs are Setting up for Success
Club Development Workshop, Monday 20 February 2017.
Ten local sporting clubs attended a goal setting and operational planning workshop on Monday 20 February. A total of 23 club volunteers heard from Gary Collins from JGC Group about the importance of planning three to five years in advance and setting realistic and achievable goals.
The interactive workshop, arranged by the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale and supported by the Department of Sport and Recreation, aimed to assist clubs with the development of their own strategic plan.
Shire President Councillor John Erren said that the workshop would help to plan for the sustainable future of local clubs.
“When our clubs are well managed and able to provide a clear direction of their needs and aspirations, it assists Council to plan for facilities and programs.”
“Knowing the direction local clubs intend to take as they grow to accommodate our growing community means that we can take their plans into consideration when looking at ‘big picture’ planning for facilities like Briggs Park, or a future regional sporting facility,” Cr Erren said.
The workshop included representatives from the Byford BMX Club, Bushrangers Teeball, Peel District Cycling Club, Mundijong Centrals Junior Football Club, Serpentine Foothills Polocrosse Club, Serpentine Horse and Pony Club, Byford Little Athletics Club, Serpentine Golf Club, Serpentine PCYC and the Darling Downs Residents Association.
