If your softball association or club is wondering how it is performing off the diamond, there is an easy way to check. The Australian Sports Commission’s Club Health Check is an online self-assessment tool designed to help clubs and associations examine how they are operating. The Checklist addresses a number of different factors that are crucial to the success of a well-run club/association.
Upon completing the Checklist a detailed report is automatically emailed to you which provides a snapshot of your organisation’s performance in critical areas and helps to identify potential improvements and areas of growth.
Why should you complete the Club Health Check?
The Club Health Check will:
- Clearly identify how your association/club is operating
- Provide a detailed report outlining key priority areas to address
- Provide access to tools, tips and an action plan template to get you started
The assessment should take no more than 30 minutes to complete. We recommend it be done by two or three people from your committee and preferably “key” people who have an overall perspective of the operations and activities of the club. The ASC Club Health Check can be found here, or visit http://www.ausport.gov.au > Supporting Sport > Club Development.
