Rounders Whole Sport Plan
2009-2013: 'Making a Difference'
Five funded interventions:
- More People Playing More Often: Growing adult participation through taster days, festivals and corporate events, all contributing towards the establishment of new clubs and leagues.
- Young People: Working with partners to deliver specialist coaching in after school clubs, fesivals in primary and secondary schools, and establishing new indoor winter and outdoor summer leagues.
- Competition Structure: Development and implementation of a competition strategy that supports regular adult competition alongside a pathway for talented Rounders players.
- More Coaches: Align coaching to the UK Coaching Framework, and develop and support coaches and coach educators through an appropriate coaching pathway mapped against the framework.
- Infrastructure Development: Provision of sound systems and procedures to enable effective management and development of the organisation which will support future growth.
