Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Adaptive Sports Center's long term goals are to continue to expand programming and meet the current organization's participant capacity, increase focus on enhancing client experiences and long term impacts on participant's lives, and develop and implement more efficient client impact measurement tools that will enhance programming effectiveness and validate the ASC's mission.

The ASC postures the following key strategies to ensure continued short-term success while maintaining future growth. We intend to expand populations served through various program offerings and build a foundation for continued long term growth, diversify and expand the focus of fundraising to fuel organizational growth and reduce client costs, re-focus marketing to optimally drive evolving programming and fundraising initiatives, measure impact of ASC programmaning on clients to enhance programming effectiveness, build a superior case to donors, and build stronger relationships with the communities we serve.

In 2018-2019, the Adaptive Sports Center intends to accomplish the growth goals set with overall activities surpassing the Strategic Plan's 6,000 mark. ASC's capabilities for meeting these goals is by consistently providing quality of experience, as well as the systems and the funding needed to keep the ASC amongst the best of adaptive programs. Expanding programming populations will continue with an on-going focus on our military, cancer survivors/fighters and VI/blind populations.

So far, the ASC is on track to achieve the goals set in our 2018-2019 strategic plan. Currently, the ASC is utilizing current programming capacity to achieve 6,000 lessons with a focus on growing both group and individual participation. The program will not only surpass this goal it will also reach its general activity capacity for the next few years to come. Ultimately, we intend to accomplish our key strategic goals to maintain, or improve on overall participant and visiting trip leader satisfaction and identify critical needs, capacities and limitations for future programmatic growth and facility expansion.
