What is Clubmark
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 club
- 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.
Over 12,000 community sports clubs already have Clubmark accreditation.
To achieve Clubmark status, a club is accredited by either the National Governing Body for its sport (NGB) or by the county sports partnership (CSP) operating in its geographic area. To see a list of all NGBs and CSPs, click here.
Only clubs affiliated to a Sport England recognised NGB can gain Clubmark.
