  1. 1. crawford report: facilities isfm summary prepared by chris green and peter holmes à court 10.01.10 webcast: slideshare.net/peterhac contact/comments: peter@whitebull.com.au
  2. 2. <ul><li>- facility auditing for sporting codes </li></ul><ul><li>- specialised business advice for sporting organisations </li></ul><ul><li>- strategic planning for infrastructure projects </li></ul><ul><li>International Sports and Facilities Management helps organisations in the sports and leisure industries understand their assets and manage them better through a number of processes we have been using - and improving - for more than 20 years. </li></ul><ul><li>While the emotions associated with sport are important, it is essential to manage the boring stuff : know exactly what the assets are, manage and maintain them, monetise as appropriate, and never forget the service to the community. </li></ul><ul><li>Sports will always be about encouraging participation at all levels and brilliance at the elite level . We help organisations devote their energy to the sport, and not on the boring stuff. </li></ul><ul><li>Thanks to our founder, Graeme Watson , we have been doing this for 20 years and have worked in every state in Australia, across NZ and Asia and for virtually every major sporting body and many Clubs and Government entities. </li></ul><ul><li>Peter Holmes à Court acquired the business in 2007 and Chris Green became CEO 2008. </li></ul>isfm does:
  3. 3. the crawford report was released to the public on november 17 and will be formally “replied to” by the federal government in february 2010
  4. 4. the crawford report was released to the public on november 17 and will be formally “replied to” by the federal government in february 2010 the crawford report is not about cutting funding for fringe sports or olympic medal counts the report includes transformational recommendations for sporting organisations across the country
  5. 5. summary 1: mass participation in all sport should be a focus of all levels of government in the future (as opposed to elite sports/winning gold medals) but the infrastructure and facilities are not able to support current levels of grassroots participation , let alone the next generation of participants crawford report: isfm summary
  6. 6. summary 2: “in order to meet the needs of the community, it is critical to know what they really are “ funding facilities without an assessment of need is unlikely to provide optimal outcomes” source: crawford report, 17.11.2009 crawford report: isfm summary
  7. 7. summary 3: the panel recommends facilities become multi-sport and community focused to decrease the chances of them being financial sinkholes for LGA’s they need to have facilities such as meeting rooms, classrooms, function facilities, canteens etc for non-sport use they should also cater for emerging sports crawford report: isfm summary
  8. 8. summary 4: “ community sport underpins elite sport by deepening the talent pool [and] also directly contributes to the social agenda” source: crawford report, 17.11.2009 crawford report: isfm summary
  9. 9. the Federal Govt create a $1b pool of funds over 4 years ($250m per year) for facilities at local level LGA’s apply to a central resource to upgrade facilities, preference given for LGA’s that match dollar-for-dollar this should be on top of any existing plans to upgrade/refit current facilities efficient buildings key financing recommendation
  10. 10. <ul><li>need to drive social outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>insufficient, ill-maintained facilities </li></ul><ul><li>insufficient information </li></ul><ul><li>demographics changing </li></ul><ul><li>high demarcation and privatisation of facilities </li></ul><ul><li>government tiers not well co-ordinated </li></ul><ul><li>rural communities hardest hit </li></ul><ul><li>environment changes hurting facilities </li></ul>crawford report: the issues
  11. 11. <ul><li>audit and understand the facilities </li></ul><ul><li>understand the demographics </li></ul><ul><li>use available technology to drive better decisions </li></ul><ul><li>better co-ordination btn Gov’t and LGAs </li></ul><ul><li>unlock ‘private’ facilities </li></ul><ul><li>smarter planning through multi-use design </li></ul><ul><li>‘ green’ current assets </li></ul><ul><li>invest in infrastructure </li></ul>crawford report: the ideas
  12. 12. there is little to no data on participation at grassroots levels across all sports, and little to no data on facilities nationwide understanding what is there
  13. 13. there is little to no data on participation at grassroots levels across all sports little to no data on facilities nationwide making decisions on where to invest money is impossible without an audit that captures what the facilities offer and who is using them understanding who is there
  14. 14. demographics are rapidly changing in australia but no-one is reflecting this in planning for new sports that might emerge One example is the influx of Asian immigrants - the dominant sports in the countries they come from are table tennis and badminton, but facilities aren’t available for these sports understand the demographics
  15. 15. government needs to be able to ‘unlock’ the facilities inside schools, universities and defence force sites for use on weekends by sports clubs due to excess demand for facilities around the country - and the majority of these sites being dormant on weekends using what we have better
  16. 16. the federal government should mandate schools upgrade/repair/create sports facilities at schools as part of their current and future stimulus funding to schools Schools would be mandated to include indoor sporting facilities in school halls. using what we have better
  17. 17. the panel recommends facilities become multi-sport and community focused to decrease the chances of them being financial sinkholes for LGA’s they need to have facilities like meeting rooms, class rooms, function facilities, canteens etc for non-sport use, and should also cater for the emerging sports using what we have better
  18. 18. Local Govt (LGA’s) carry most of the burden for funding (original and on-going) for local sporting facilities with Federal and State Govt’s having an ad-hoc input, mainly around large stadia Federal Govt needs to be involved in assisting LGA’s by funding them directly helping local government
  19. 19. rural communities particularly badly off both with facilities in poor state of repair and demographic changes sport is more often important in the country than it is in the city due to the social nature of sport in country towns helping rural communities
  20. 20. “ in order to meet the needs of the community, it is critical to know what they really are. Funding facilities without an assessment of need is unlikely to provide optimal outcomes.” understanding the assets source: crawford report, 17.11.2009
  21. 21. <ul><li>“ It is clear than an evidence base is required to: </li></ul><ul><li>identify current and future needs, including consideration of changing population demographics </li></ul><ul><li>determine the location and standard of our current stock of facilities </li></ul><ul><li>determine to what extent existing facilities (including those under-utilised in schools, universities and defence installments) are able to meet current and future demand </li></ul><ul><li>enable planning to address future community needs” </li></ul>understanding the assets source: crawford report, 17.11.2009
  22. 22. “ a web-based geographic information system (GIS)... a national infrastructure database and blueprint, which would logically be held and maintained by the Australian Government “ this database would be a compilation of local databases connected through web-based technologies” we can use technology to do this source: crawford report, 17.11.2009
  23. 23. huge importance on future design to be as ‘green’ as possible, artificial turf, water tanks, recyled water, solar power, energy-efficient buildings etc urgent greening and sustaining
  24. 24. <ul><li>sports must use what they have much better </li></ul><ul><li>prepare for the future now </li></ul><ul><li>money available if sporting organisations gather the data on their assets and focus on participation and community engagement </li></ul>crawford report: isfm conclusion

The completed project, and the adjoining park is considered a benchmark in community and elite sports integration. Viocorp developed this site to create a broadcast model for the track cycling masters championship. The model demonstrated how high quality multi-camera coverage, produced efficiently (i.e., cheaply) could create multiple new revenue streams (organiser, participants, sponsors, syndication) and enable a small participation sport to reach its geographically diverse fan base. www.cyclingmasters.tv www.isfm.com.au/projects_redfernoval.html
