TD Solutions Club Workshop 2019

Club Workshop (Strategic Plan 2019-2023)

 ALL WELCOME!

 Parents, committee, sponsors, players, coaches and anyone involved with our great club

 Monday 18 November 2019- 6.15–9.00pm at clubrooms

 

Running a grassroots community club, the size of ours can be challenging and put pressure on the volunteers who do the lion’s share of the work. We can risk volunteer burnout, which can ultimately lead to a lowering of our standards – in professionalism, performance, revenue, and all the things we have come to love about our club.

To support our volunteers and help our club run better, we invite everyone involved with the club, past and present, to attend this important planning workshop.

It is an opportunity to take our club to the next level and secure its on and off-field sustainability by creating a strategic plan and getting everyone to contribute to building a strong future for the club.

This engaging interactive 2.5 to 3-hour session is for all members of our senior and junior clubs. It covers 5 key areas:

  • HEALTH ASSESSMENT – TDS health check – analysing 10 key areas of the club – identifying gaps and opportunities, succession planning & more
  • REVENUE GENERATION – Identifying 30 New revenue initiatives that should generate the Club $70-$100k New revenue in Year 1
  • FINANCIAL REPORTING – Simplified reporting structure (3 x 1 pages) to ensure tracking of financial health is maintained
  • VOLUNTEERS – Opportunities to have the Federal Government to fund some people to work for our club at NO cost.
  • COMMITTEE STRUCTURE – walking through the importance of having the right committee structure going forward.
  • PLUS! A STRATEGIC PLAN ON 4 PAGES covering 5 short-term operational pillars (12 months) and 5 key long-term strategic pillars (3-5 years). The workshop session provides a simple roadmap for the committee to follow.

Please make the time to participate in this important session!

 For more information please contact Joshua Munting on 0458 015 332

Gilmour Answers the Call

The Hobart Football Club is pleased to announce the appointments of Former AFL Richmond Draftee and Tassie Devils player, Alex Gilmour (Pictured Right) as the Club’s Senior Playing Coach for the next two years. He will be supported by the appointment of Senior Assistant Playing Coach Brad Joseph (previous Richmond OSFC Captain – Pictured Left). Both players are very experienced Tasmanian State League players, who will greatly boost the ranks and strength of the Tigers, as well as attracting other ‘A-Graders’ to the Club, as we look to turn around our on-field fortunes in 2020.

Alex Gilmour has coached Richmond in the Old Scholars for the last five years, taking them to four Grand Finals and two Premierships in that time. Gilmour kicked 100 goals for the 2019 season, including a 20 goal haul against St Virgils in Round 11.

Brad Joseph is a strong utility player, kicking multiple goals on a number of occasions in 2019, and was very instrumental in Richmond’s path to this year’s Grand Final. Brad will be strong support to Alex in his assistant coaching role as well as providing much added strength and ability to Hobart’s line-up for 2020.
