Club support resources

Club health check

The Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing offers an online self-assessment tool aimed at helping clubs examine how they are operating. The Club Health Check should take no more than 30 minutes to complete.

Club planning

Club planning is a critical part of good governance and serves as a compass for the direction of your club's future. Having a plan will assist in achieving goals and will help your club focus success.

The key components of planning include an understanding of the club's vision, mission, values and strategies.

For more information on how to plan and why, please visit the Australian Sports Commission website.
