STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT WITHIN ENGLAND NETBALL: GRASSROOTS TO ELITE
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to investigate if England Netball’s strategic management should focus more on either the grassroots or elite level game. In particular the study explored the extent to which this could impact positively on England Netball’s ability to achieve its strategic mission and vision and enhance their success as a National Governing Body (NGB). Semi-structured interviews were conducted with six participants who were either players or employers in the England Netball governing body at either elite or grassroots level. The findings showed how these individuals were unaware of the implications of the strategic management within the organisation and proposed that a shift in focus from grassroots to elite level netball should be applied by the governing body, as elite netball is believed to boost many aspects, including; national identity, profile and can encourage mass participation (Stewart et al, 2007). A proactive approach was taken to provide the governing body with an adoptable model by De Bosscher (2010) called the SPLISS model (Sports Policy factors leading to International Sporting Success), to support developments and elite success for England Netball. Further research is recommended to broaden the knowledge base in this area and the implementation of the model used, to raise awareness of the importance of improving the focus on elite level netball.
