Clubmark is the universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports Clubs. 

It stands for;

  • Higher standards of welfare, equity, coaching and management in community sports Clubs 

  • Making sure the nation’s sports Club infrastructure is safer, stronger and more successful 

It shows that a Club provides the right environment which ensures the welfare of members and encourages everyone to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives. 

An accredited Club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages as well as helping parents and carers know that they’re choosing the right Club for their young people. 


Clubmark Benefits 

  • The development of clear goals and objectives can be communicated to all Club members and the wider community. This highlights the Club’s focus and ambition for the future and provides a solid foundation for all Clubs wishing to grow 

  • The analysis of the current workforce ensures all training is up to date and the Club is operating at its best 

  • Adopting more organised systems and structures will help the Club run more efficiently and effectively 

  • Addressing issues such as equity and child protection should increase parents confidence when choosing the correct Club for their child 

  • Updating policies, training and systems shows confidence and increased productivity. This in turn attracts schools and local authorities that must ensure quality and child friendly systems and procedures 

  • Clubmark will assist you to have strategies for recruitment of new members 

  • Some leisure operators and local authorities may give priority and at times discount to Clubmark accredited Clubs 

  • Clubmark provides recognition for high quality Clubs 

  • Members can be sure their club is a well-managed Club, striving to offer the best in coaching and sports development
