New Zealanders Choosing Squash
Squash NZ have launched their new Strategic Plan for the next three years (2013-2015) with an over-arching vision of New Zealanders choosing squash.
This Strategic Plan outlines the direction for Squash New Zealand over the next 3 years. We have chosen 4 areas that are important to the growth and development of the sport: connection, pathways, clubs and leadership.
Within these areas, we have identified strategic goals that Squash NZ will focus on achieving within the period. To highlight how we will achieve these goals, we have included some operational goals.
Underpinning this whole plan is our vision that New Zealanders will choose squash, whether it is to play, coach, ref, volunteer, fund, sponsor, include in their newspaper, or deliver at their school. If this happens, then we will be successful in our mission to grow squash and increase participation. We promise to do all this with integrity, innovation and excellence.
The plan was launched at the Squash NZ AGM on 1 December 2012 and printed copies of the plan are with the Districts, to be given to all affiliated clubs. An electronic version of the plan can be found here.
