TRIENNIUM STRATEGIC PLAN: 2012-2015

INTRODUCTION It is with much satisfaction that we introduce the Capital Football Triennium Strategic Plan 2012-2015. We are indeed a game for everyone to play and enjoy as can be witnessed on any given day in the ACT and Region. This Strategic Plan aims to ensure that we continue to live up to and grow that ideal. This Plan has come together following much careful thought, discussion and consultation with a broad array of stakeholders. The Plan is very much a bringing together of the best ideas and visionary thinking about where our game here in the ACT and Region can be in by 2015. Capital Football is certainly a vital part of the broader national football community and the tapestry of sport and life in the ACT and Region, so it is important that we place our Strategic Plan within other key frameworks that have recently been developed, including Football Federation Australia’s Strategic Plan 2012-2015, and the ACT Government’s Active2020 plan for sport and recreation 2011-2020. We are pleased and confident that our Plan will facilitate outcomes for both these other key visions for the future. We believe that it is through careful and clear goal setting that great things can be achieved, and this Strategic Plan aims to do just that. This Plan provides us with our collective vision for the next three years and we believe that achieving the outcomes we have set for our sport is about everyone who loves our game working together. After all... We are Football, the game for Everyone! Rachel Harrigan President and Chair

Heather Reid Chief Executive Officer
