Sports Strategies

Developing strategies for a sport, whether at a National, State, community or local level we have experience to guide all organisations through the process.

The Sports Development Continuum of encouraging people to play; creating recreational opportunities to grow participation; provision of development pathways for training or completion all need to be connected.

The provision of facilities, programs and activities, modified sports and funding’s is often only addressed from specific perspectives and is rarely holistic in an approach by involving all providers, funders and stakeholders equally. We believe that strategic planning should be holistic with all providers consulted and embracing the outcomes of the Strategy to ensure it’s successful. This approach has been proven globally and we can support sports organisations in the development of such a process to ensure the success of their organisation.
