Good Governance in Grassroots Sport

The project aims to provide access to a sport specific governance resource that will improve governance practices, and to assess the governance and leadership level in your organisation.

Good Governance in Grassroots Sport Self Assessment Tool

The self assessment tool has been developed as a resource for grassroots sport organisations and provides a range of information and templates across three themes of governance and four Principles.

The purpose of the tool is to provide access to a sport specific governance resource that will improve governance practices, and to assess the governance and leadership level in your organisation.

The assessment tool is not a survey, but is designed for use either for self assessment purposes or in a coordinated assessment of key processes inside the organisation to help to discuss and improve the way of good governance in organisation.

The self assessment tool is designed with the intention of helping organisations in three ways:

Helps organisations illustrate a commitment to good governance and will help put the issue of good governance higher on the internal and external agenda.

Helps organisations to initiate and achieve sustainable development by encouraging the development of systems and processes to address identified shortcomings.

Gives organisations the opportunity to develop their strategy and leadership based on good examples from the grassroots sport sector and consultation with the good example owners.

Good Governance in Grassroots Sport & ISCA

This tool has been created by the International Sport and Culture Association - ISCA - with the assistance of Good Governance in Grassroots Sport Project partners as a resource for grassroots sport organisations. ISCA is a global platform open to organisations working within the field of sport for all, recreational sports and physical activity.

HOW TO USE THE SELF ASSESSMENT TOOL?

We don’t see the self assessment becoming compulsory or government owned. It is an initiative driven by the grassroots sport sector, for the sector and we imagine in future years it will be redrafted by thesector to reflect the dynamism of governance and the evolution of best practice. The tool aims to help organisations change their ethos, behaviours and attitudes; which will only work if organisations are committed to good governance. Self-assessment is part of the journey to achieving the best governance possible for an organisation.
