View this as we interview Don Pierson, past-president of Kingston Impact Basketball Club.






What have you done well – since you started back in 2007?

What programs link strongest to your mission?

What is (or are) your Club’s greatest assets?

What are your biggest challenges as a Club?

How do you make money as a Club?

What are your barriers to growth?

What clubs do you admire – why?

What cites are great basketball towns?

What would you want your Club to look like if five years?

Who is on your Board (no names) – what are their skill sets/knowledge and what is the Board’s strengths and weaknesses?

Does your Board discuss long-term planning and do you do any development?

Current Situation Analysis: where are they today …

Current revenue generators:

House league fees

Tournaments – Mega, others

Rep teams – break even





Biggest expenses:







Biggest barriers to growth:

Gyms – gym time


Attraction of players – coaches


So … breaking it down, there are three (?) areas of concern/barriers to growth the Board needs to address …

Gym time – strategies (how do they solve this today, and what does tomorrow look like?)



Money – strategies (there are several areas they make money today, and they could in the future)



Attraction – strategies (attraction of who, whom …)




Your assignment:

1 – research – what do I need to know? … what do we need to know? …who is solving this?

2 – brainstorm – share what you know, (S+W we have) and where are the opportunities and threats …

3 – best opportunities – bring the best ideas forward … work them up, develop ideas/strategies – work them through to a few tactics (short-term, long-term – but everything should be forecasting to a long-term success)

4 – small, deliverable … come up with a ‘step forward’ …

5 – write it up

Possible projects:

Improve communication with stakeholders for attraction of players/talent/coaches – stakeholders could include: schools/school boards (which could also be linked to gym time), colleges/universities (which could be linked to talent and gym time), parents/players, coaches, referees (with the end result helping to … assist with one of the three identified needs)

Improve relationships with surrounding municipalities – which could result in stronger partnerships on tourism (short-term and long-term), sponsorship, (short-term and long-term), cash (new money – long-term) … and gym space (long-term)

Review opportunities for grants for funding

Review sponsorship package

Board development and attraction

Megas and Tournaments

Camps – Workshops
