Created by Sport for Sport, the Top Plan Project (previously known as Top Club) is an online planning tool that can assist your Club or Association to achieve best practice procedures and engage in forward planning.

Top Plan engages Members to provide input into what they consider to be the essential elements of their organisation. Top Plan’s planning is based on what Members nominate to be the organisation’s Purpose, Values, Vision and appropriate Member behaviour, both on and off the court. The outcome is an annual plan with clear strategies and objectives that can assist you with the delegation process and prioritising.

It can be easy to advocate the values and behaviours people should bring to your organisation, but any real impact you have on culture is driven by how your words consistently match your actions. Based on contemporary management practices, Top Plan enhances Club and Association culture through strong and effective leadership, a consultative decision-making process to achieve buy-in, agreement of behaviour standards and consistent practice of these behaviours by all Members.

To undertake further information gathering prior to undertaking a Top Plan Workshop, the Australian Sports Commission Club Health Check can be completed to examine how your Club is currently operating.

The Top Plan project is a partnership between the WA Sports Federation and eight State Sport Associations: Netball WA, Basketball WA, Football West, Hockey WA, Rugby WA, Surf Life Saving WA, WA Cricket Association and the WA Football Commission. The RAC provides support in partnership with the Department of Sport and Recreation.

To date 92 netball Clubs and Associations have participated in the project. If you are interested in having your Club or Association participate in the project, please register through the Top Plan Sessions portal.

Alternatively, you can contact Kate Bond, Member Services Coordinator, on 9380 3744 or for more information.
