Clubs encouraged to take up free SPARC offer quickly

by Jodie Bakewell-White

SPARC and Yachting New Zealand want yacht clubs to take advantage of a new service that helps sport and recreation organisations to become better run. The Organisational Development Tool opportunity remains open to just four more Clubs.

Using the same principles utilised by many top businesses, clubs using the Organisational Deveopment Tool (ODT) will sit down with a trained facilitator and answer questions about leadership, planning, customer (member) focus, how they deliver their sport, how they manage their staff and volunteers, and internal management of the sport.

One of the key benefits is that your club will receive a comprehensive ‘Warrant of Fitness’ assessment report that identifies areas where it can improve, and a facility that helps you to stay on track as you implement the changes.

The SPARC Organisational Development Tool is mainly software based, and helps to develop successful and sustainable sport and recreational organisations. It identifies strengths and opportunities and provides direction and clarity as you work to improve.

The service is usually free, and your organisation will be assessed to see if it’s suitable to use the tool. Spaces are limited to four more Clubs and we recommend that you act soon - contact Andrew Clouston at Yachting New Zealand to find out more. Email or tel. (09) 361 4021.
