Good practices for indicators for success

Indicators for success

Who & where? AMLF, Bulgaria
What? Our indicators for success are directly related to numbers – to the games played previous year, the number of organised events, how many teams and people have participated in the events.
How? We aim to set indicators at the beginning of each year and relate them to previous years. For us it is important to become better, not the numbers as separate numbers.
Why? It is really hard to keep the numbers of up, we keep having people who quit, who do not want to spend so much time on sports, are not serious and it is hard for them to mаke such a commitment. Hence, indicators for how we are moving are very important, so that we can set new strategies and ways for having good involvement.
Who & where? SD Bogojina, Slovenia
What? The greatest success for our organization is the continuity of operation and competition of the member team, regardless of which league (rank) it competes in. We are facing a shortage of playing staff due to the lower activity level of younger people. 41-year-olds and two 39-year-olds are also actively competing in the team.
How? We aim to set our indicators based on the players that we have had previous years.
Good practice:
- connecting clubs and certain selections of different clubs into a single selection (this started to happen in Pomurje mainly in the last year)
- activating young people who have ended their careers too soon.
Regarding the increase of financial resources:
- introduction of training sessions for younger selections,
- participation in various EU projects,
- application for various state tenders and projects.
Why? It will definitely be necessary to find young players from the surrounding area and other clubs. Provide sufficient financial resources for the operation and competitions of all selections.
Who & where? ASSA Sport Talent, North Macedonia
What?  Our indicators for success are related to the number of projects that we take part in, and creating a network of successful international partnerships.
How? The projects are important for us as they give us exposure to more young people, hence, the chance to manage professional career of the sport professional that started as youth with the organization. We aim to get proper feedback from the projects that we work on, so that we can grow and improve and this is a great indicator of success for us.
Why?  We created a great network in almost any country as a reference of successful international partnership, and it is important for us that we have this as an indicator.
Who & where? AF Braganca, Portugal
What? For our Football Association the ultimate goal it’s to reach 3000 athletes by 2025 and grow every year till reach this number.
How? We use the SMART methodology to help us to define the goals by making them specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and timely. The SMART method helps push you further, gives you a sense of direction, and helps you organize and reach your goals
Why? This goal definition could be measurable and will provide us with the indicators.
Who & where? LECS, Romania
What? The main indicator that we measure is the level of motivation of young people practicing healthy practices and sports in the long term
How? We also measure the results in local/regional tournaments.
Why? Creating a diverse training program is a good practice example that avoids the boredom attitude within the players.
