    • Plan your Club (Strategic Planning)
      Presented by Leisa Donlan, committee.com.au
      This is a practical planning opportunity for club committees at which your organisation will be given assistance to:

      • decide on its vision for the future,
      • assess its issues (internal and external),
      • set goals for not only the coming season but the next five years, and
      • produce an actual plan and develop actions.
    • The Power of Position Doing
      Presented by Dr Phil Jauncey, Fit Education
      The Power of Positive Doing gives participants an understanding of the difference between positive thinking and positive doing, and why action is important. Areas covered in the workshop include:

      • Natural consequences – a relatively easy way to get ownership from errant behaviour.
      • Six steps to success – an objective way of self-improvement
      • Emotional well-being.
      • Why we sometimes under-perform and how to help ourselves and others to keep performance at a high level.

    Sunday 25 February 2018 at Emerald Town Hall

    9.00 am to 12.00 pm

    • Facility Management (Part A)
      Presented by Michael Connelly – CPR
      Sports clubs are the custodians of valuable community infrastructure and are responsible for maintaining these assets in the best possible condition for the benefit members and the broader community. Ongoing management of new, existing and improved sporting facilities, including equipment, is a constant challenge for clubs as they face greater community expectations and increasing costs.
      This course provides information and tools to assist committees to better understand the range of issues surrounding facility maintenance, including playing surfaces, clubhouses, amenities, lighting, storage, fencing, spectator facilities, plant and equipment.
    • Beginner Sports Strapping: Injury prevention and management
      Presented by SMA Qld branch
      Sports strapping is used across many sports in the treatment, management and prevention of sports injuries. But just when should strapping be used? How should an ankle or other injury be strapped?
      This course offers technical and practical advice on sports strapping with a particular focus on strapping techniques for the ankle, finger and thumb as well as the principles and application of strapping as a post injury or preventative measure. The workshop is ideal for players, parents, team managers and first aid staff who work directly with players and athletes. Registrations are limited!

    12.45 pm to 3.45 pm

    • Facility Management (Part B)
      Presented by Jason Leslie, Otium
      Following on from Part A, this course provides insights into the principles and practices of facility management, includes interactive discussions and group exercises using a range of friendly templates and provides tips along with best practice methods for ensuring all users understand their responsibilities when utilising the facilities.
    • Advanced Sports Strapping: When to strap… or not to strap!
      Presented by SMA Qld branch
      This course provides hands-on experience of advanced strapping techniques, with a focus on injuries associated with the knee and shoulder joints. Advanced principles and application of strapping as a post-injury or preventative measure are also covered.
      This workshop builds on the beginner sports strapping workshop which is a prerequisite for registration. Registrations are limited!
