Clubmark - a high quality experience for young people
Sport England recognises and values the commitment made by sports clubs to develop high quality, welcoming environments for young participants. The development of clubs that encourage young people to take-up sport, improve their talents, possibly play a leadership role and give them the option to initiate and maintain life-long participation in sport is an essential part of supporting the sporting infrastructure in England.
Clubmark serves to:
- Ensure that accrediting partners apply core common criteria to ensure that consistent good practice and minimum operating standards are delivered through all club development and accreditation schemes.
- To empower parent(s)/carer(s) when choosing a club for their children.
- To ensure that Clubmark accredited clubs are recognised through a common approach to branding.
- To provide a focus around which all organisations involved in sport can come together to support good practice in sports clubs working with children and young people.

Do You Have Some Time to Offer?
Athletic clubs, whatever their focus, are traditionally run by dedicated volunteers who give up their time to ensure our clubs function for the good of their athletes and families.
From organising training, sorting transport to competitions, promoting the club locally - right through to making sure the social events run smoothly, these volunteers always give up their time freely.
