Our Strategy

Applying sound organization and business principles to the management of soccer clubs and organizations is what The Game Planners (TGP) are all about.


TGP is changing the paradigm for how clubs and organizations think about success!


The difference between an organization that gets adequate results and one that stands out is the ability to manage performance effectively.  Using our Club Effectiveness Model (CEM), we guide our clients to better align the key organizational elements needed to succeed. We partner with our clients to identify and address those areas that will create an engaging experience for all stakeholders- and a more sustainable, healthy business.



At its core, The Game Planners' value proposition centers on helping clients clarify and optimize relationships between drivers such as organization development, business development, and player development, your stakeholders’ experience, and important outcomes, such as club brand, member retention, and financial stability.

Are you looking to grow your soccer organization? Refresh your brand? Navigate through periods of instability? Maximize the retention of players and coaches? Enhance community involvement? Improve continuity of board members? Link your business plan to more strategic, long-term goals? ....then TGP is the right partner for you.
