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.
