Club Accreditation

Clubmark Banner

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

Clubmark aims to make sure the nation’s sports Club infrastructure is safer, stronger and more successful and stands for higher standards of welfare, equality, coaching and management in community sports Clubs.

It will show that your Club provides the right environment ensuring the welfare of members and encouraging 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 can help you to improve your Club by…


 - Setting clear goals and objectives


- Ensuring your Club is running effectively and efficiently


- Updating policies, training and systems


- Accredited Clubs are able to use Sainsbury’s Active Kids scheme
