Getting ready for another season

Getting ready for another season requires Clubs to think about and take action on a lot of things. Planning will assist your Club to do this better. 

Planning helps to:

  • Communicate all club activities to members
  • Look at where the club has come from, where it is now, where it wants to go and how it is going to get there
  • Identify the main objectives of the club
  • Encourage the members to get involved in the development of the club
  • Ensure that resources (human, physical and financial) are used effectively
  • Bring order into the hectic business of running a Rugby club

The planning process for Rugby clubs generally focuses on operational planning, the day to day planning of activities/events, as opposed to more formalised club strategic planning, that looks at long term objectives.

Clubs can initially develop club calendars to formalise planned activities/events at the club, before moving onto more formalised operational and strategic plans.

Fact Sheets, Templates and Club Documents / Case Studies are available below.

Please use, adapt and implement these resources to meet your club's needs.
