There’s a lot more to running a swimming club than meets the eye. It is necessary to make sure the pool is hired for training, club night entries are taken, and membership fees are paid, but there are larger processes at work when a club is running well.
Governance refers to the systems we have in place at Oak Flats SC that control how it is run. This includes our club constitution, rules and by-laws, policies and procedures, risk management, and WHS to name a few. Governance also encompasses long and short term planning, member welfare, and legal/regulatory compliance.
