With club competition in full swing and some entering finals I have had the opportunity to communicate or meet with three sports. The Netball, Basketball and Senior Cricket clubs have been the first to complete the pathways questions, analysing overall club development along a number of parameters. Some similar themes are beginning to emerge, especially regarding coaching, facilities, and Committee succession planning.
I will continue to meet with clubs and hope to have this process complete by early November. After this time we will look at the key areas of need within our clubs and develop a range of resources to assist in creating standards of excellence. We anticipate a summary document to be distributed to clubs by the end of the year. If you or your members have any questions around coach or participant development I would be very happy to assist where possible.
You can contact me on 0431 174 806 or firstname.lastname@example.org
