 Vision and Strategic Plan Introduction

The Moss Vale Junior Dragons Rugby League Club Incorporated (MVJDRLC) has outlined a cultural and business vision, designed to promote the game of Rugby League in Moss Vale through to the year 2020.

This plan takes into account the changing economic environment, specific local challenges and the opportunities afforded to the MVJDRLC to represent the interests of rugby league in Group 6 JRL of the NSW CRL.

The strategic planning process provided the opportunity to refocus and develop a professional and cost-effective organisation built upon a solid base. This base focuses on two key areas:

  • A Cultural Vision: to provide insight into the philosophy of the organisation and provide guidance on the cultural expectations of all stakeholders within the MVJDRLC; and
  • A Business Vision: to outline the basis of a visionary organisation that is both professional and cost-effective, leaving a legacy on which the future of rugby league in Moss Vale can be built upon.
