Effective governance protects the rights of association and club members and stakeholders and assists the continued success and growth of your club or association.
An organisation that demonstrates good governance:
- develops strategic goals and direction
- monitors the club’s performance to ensure it achieves its strategic goals
- has effective financial and non-financial systems in place
- complies with its legal and regulatory obligations
- acts in the best interests of its members.
Planning is the development of a future direction and a road map of the actions to get there. All plans need to detail actions to follow to achieve agreed outcomes over a designated period of time. Your association or club plans are important tools that can assist with longevity, financial stability, innovation and general success. They are also very useful for keeping people on track, they can save you heaps of time and duplication of effort.
Club Help has some useful resources for associations and clubs.
Planning is an essential part of good performance: Strategic planning for long term aspirations, business planning to develop budgets and forecasts, and operational planning to get the season up and running.

Basketball Victoria’s Tribunal has been established to deal with poor behaviour, both on and off the court. It is usually administered on Basketball Victoria’s behalf at local associations. Most reports are lodged by referees but others are also empowered to lodge reports. Hearings are kept as informal as possible but certain procedures must be followed by the Tribunal Members. Tribunals are heard by between 2 and 3 members. The offences under the Tribunal By-laws carry maximum penalties, with life-time bans being the most serious for physical offences against officials.
The Tribunal Register is only available to association administrators or relevant personnel. To request the password please contact Merryn Sholer - firstname.lastname@example.org.
