Club Accreditation

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.

Accredited clubs have demonstrated that they comply with minimum standards in four areas.
• The playing programme
• Duty of care and safeguarding and protecting children and young people
• Knowing your club and its community
• Club management

Sport England’s ‘Clubmark’ is a cross-sport quality accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections. They have produced a ‘Pathway to accreditation’ so you can answer some questions in order to find out which organisation to contact to register an interest.

Clubs working towards Club Mark can seek support & advice from their NGB / CSP alongside accessing tools and templates from Club Matters to help guide them through the process. Please contact your NGB in the first instance, if you your sport does not have a governing body please contact us for support: hello@countydurhamsport.com
