Clubmark Accreditation

We are a Clubmark club

Clubmark is the universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports clubs. It is based on criteria which must be supported by specific evidence. Based on four key areas of club development it centres around:
  • Activity/playing programmes – this includes, for example, coaching qualifications required, insurance and coach to participant ratios
  • Duty of care and welfare – appropriate risk assessments, health and safety policies, training, compliance and child protection policies
  • Knowing your club and its community – this ensures that your club is committed to fairness and equity in respect of the way in seeks to attract and retain members from your local community
  • Club management – which covers issues to do with club and committee structures and the general running of the organisation

  • Sport England recognises and values the commitment made by clubs to develop high quality, welcoming environments for all participants. The development of clubs that encourage people to take-up sport, improve their talents, possibly play a leadership role and offer opportunities to maintain life-long participation is an essential part of supporting the sporting infrastructure.

    Clubmark was introduced by Sport England to:
  • Assist in its drive to increase levels of participation in sport
  • Empower parent(s)/carer(s) when choosing a club for their children
  • Enable adults to choose the right kind of club to join
  • Provide a focus around which all organisations involved in sport can come together to support good practice and safeguarding in sports clubs
  • Ensure that organisations offering accredition apply common criteria, so that good practice and minimum operating standards are delivered through all club development and accreditation schemes
  • Ensure that Clubmark accredited clubs are recognised through a common approach to branding
