Club Health Checklist

How healthy is your club?

Providing access to the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) Club Health Checklist

Clubs can assess their progress in becoming successful and sustainable organisations by using the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) Club Health Checklist. This tool has been established to assist State Sporting Organisations and their clubs by providing them with information to help improve governance and address areas for focus and improvement. The Town of Port Hedland is supportive of this tool and if any assistance is required in completing the ASC Club Health Check or interpreting and acting on the results, contact the Club Development Officer.

The questions within the ASC Club Health Checklist focus on the key areas that drive clubs and how to set, and reach targets considered important to running a successful club. A report is provided at the completion of the survey which gives clubs a clear picture of whether their operations and activities are on target to achieve their goals.
 
The report is broken down into three sections;

  • Action plan – Six priority areas, as determined from the answers provided in the checklist, are identified in an action plan along with resources to assist in improving these areas. An action plan template has been designed to facilitate discussion and guide planning for the club committee. It is strongly recommended that the committee or a working group address each of the items in this report. This plan should also form part of the on-going discussions for the committee.
  • Summary report – The summary report provides data on how clubs have scored in the areas identified as important to their future success. An outline of all of the results and general information on each key area, and related resources to assist with improvement, is also provided in this section.
  • Summary of priority responses – The summary of priority responses provides a copy of all the questions answered, along with the responses and subsequent priority level. This information can give further background to committee discussions and future actions.

As a result of the introduction of the Club Health Checklist, DSR would like feedback on the support and resources that State Sporting Associations and their clubs may require after the completion of the checklist. Following this, the department will develop a Club Support Package. 

Please contact Ben Armstrong,  Project Officer – Community Sport and Recreation, on (08) 9492 9622 or ben.armstrong@dsr.wa.gov.au to provide feedback.
