Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to input into the Tauranga Hockey Strategic Plan Renewal Process over the past 6 months.
We are now at the stage where a high level Draft Strategic Plan has been put together that includes the vision, purpose and goals for the association over the next 4-5 years. It also includes four values that we see as key to underpinning this plan moving forward. The Plan can be viewed at the orange button above.
The Board are meeting on Tuesday night with the view of finalising the plan. Before then, we’d like to give the community the opportunity to provide feedback on it so this can be taken into consideration at the time. If you have any feedback that you would like to give then please send it to Megan Cleverley who is facilitating this work at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm Tuesday 25 October.
Summary Feedback from Stakeholders
Over a period of six weeks, stakeholders of Tauranga Hockey Association were given the opportunity to provide feedback through various focus groups, one-on-one meetings, emails, phone calls and completing online surveys. We would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to provide their thoughts and ideas into this process.
Whilst there are still five more small one-on-one meetings to take place, we have received over 120 pages of information to analyse so are confident there is sufficient information at this stage to enable the following summary to be created for further feedback.
This information has been put together to provide a high-level summary of the findings. It is not all comments, but key themes that are coming through.

We are seeking your input to help us identify what we need to focus on over the next four years. We appreciate if you can complete the Stakeholder Survey to assist with this process. Click on the orange button below.

Strategic Plan Review
Over the next few months, the Board will be undertaking a significant engagement process with our stakeholders and supporters, to help understand what we need to be placing focus and energy on for the next four years and beyond. Key to this is having a better understanding about how we are currently operating and to identify activities that we should stop, keep, or start doing to provide clarity around both the importance and priority of these activities in the future to form the Strategic Plan (project).
This is a very important project for the Association as it informs ‘the why’ and signals ‘how’ the Association plans for the future and responds operationally to our changing and unpredictable environment. Outside of managing through COVID-19, the last strategic plan (2018-2021) enabled the opening of Moana Turf in 2020 and the establishment of the Pathways Manager and Participation Officer roles in 2021-22 – all key building blocks to enabling the growth of the sport at all levels across the region. The Board is committed to plan and deliver the right activities inline with future needs for the region, and acknowledges there are some priority areas which need strategic focus, including both the role of the pavilion and making it fit for purpose, and the outcome of the Blake Park Master Plan project (currently in consultation phase managed by Tauranga City Council).
To help the Board with our Strategic Plan review, we have appointed an independent facilitator to lead the engagement process. Megan Cleverley who many of you know, will facilitate the meetings and discussions and will be the point of contact for any queries, and as this is a very important piece of work the Board will also be actively involved in all areas. The goal is to have the final Strategic Plan available for communication to the community by the end of October. This will enable it to be utilised to drive initiatives as early as the 2023 season.
Over the next few weeks Clinton and Megan will confirm and send out more information regarding the range of opportunities available for you to participate in which will include online surveys, focus groups, 1-1 meetings. Focus Group meetings will commence the week starting 18 July and will target specific areas so keep an eye out for these.
As a Board we welcome and encourage your insights and thoughts as part of developing the future of hockey in the region.
