Clubmark For Clubs Whose Governing Body Awards This Accreditation

Clubmark is a national cross sports quality accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections. It is built around a set of core criteria that ensures that clubs operate to consistent, accepted and adopted minimum standards.

This is becoming an essential need for many clubs and although the process may seem long it is crucial that clubs show that they are committed to providing high quality coaching and welcoming, safe environments for young people to play sport.

There is a website dedicated to this purpose which offers clubs all of the tools and resources necessary to complete the process.

Clubmark is a national sports quality accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections.

Being awarded with Clubmark will benefit your club in a number of ways, you will find that although some parts of the process may be lengthy you will benefit at the end as you will have in place all of the systems, policies and procedures to develop your club and coaches, increase membership and participation, sustain growth and benefit from 100% discretionary rate relief.

It is also a good exercise in that it helps to identify roles for volunteers and members, future plans and also makes members/volunteers more aware of the part they can play within your club.

Many clubs rely on a small number to carry out a variety of roles and tasks, this process can help delegate these roles and encourage younger members/parents to take on more of a responsibility to secure the future of your club. Donít forget that once you have Clubmark or the equivalent you will be entered onto a national database and other directories that will promote your club and give parents confidence when choosing a club for their children.

It is a great opportunity to take stock as it were, dust off the archives and come up with new and exciting plans to take your club forward.

Please be aware also that many funding organisations now and in the future will only fund sports clubs with an accreditation so nowís as good a time as any to get the ball rolling.

Here is the link to the Clubmark website and donít forget that Sport Kingston and the Active Kingston Team are here to help you so if you have any queries or need our assistance then please get in touch.

Generic Clubmark

Pro Active South London is now licensed to award Clubmark to those clubs whose governing bodies are unable to do so, as long as your sport is recognised by Sport England - click here for list

The process is the same as above, and you will use the resources and documents on the Clubmark website but you will then have to send all of the paperwork to your local authority which in Kingstonís case is the Active Kingston Team who will then check that you have everything in place before sending it to Pro Active for accreditation.

County Sports Partnership - Pro-Active South London

Due to the positive response to our mapping exercise of Clubmark and working towards clubs this time last year, it has been decided to rerun the exercise for 2009. Clubmark clubs continue to support sustainable sporting opportunity with an estimated 800,000 young people being members of Clubmark or working towards clubs.

The number of Clubmark clubs continues to rise and has increased nationally from 4,125 August 2008 to 5,410 (31%) August 2009. Further, the number of working towards clubs has also risen, during this time, from 4,161 to 4,511. All these clubs have committed themselves to developing school-club links and development plans.
