Our Five-Year Strategic Planning Goals
Skyline Soccer Association finalized a six-month strategic plan in early 2014. This plan was the culmination of many interviews with the Skyline Board of Directors, the Skyline staff, organization stakeholders, as well as a survey which received over 900 responses. The focus of the plan was to find out exactly where the organization should concentrate its efforts. From those concentrations, the staff developed specific, measurable, relevant, attainable, and time-sensitive goals to be reached by 2020. Below is a brief overview of our outline. The full report will be available soon.
- Growth and Retention – We aim to grow our programs by 5% annually at all levels over the next five years. Targeted efforts will improve retention of Skyline members throughout their entire soccer career.
- Coaching Excellence – Understanding that coaching quality plays an integral role in the success of our organization, we will focus renewed and increased resources on hiring, training, and retaining the best coaches possible.
- Player Development – We will demonstrate our strong commitment to the youth participants of Skyline by investing passionately in the growth and development of each individual player.
- Organizational Development – Skyline will consistently and vigorously evaluate itself in order to continually develop the organization with the ultimate goals of meeting members’ needs and being a highly successful soccer club.
