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 clubs.
  • Making sure the nation's sports club infrastructure is safer, stronger and more successful.
  • Ensuring clubs provide the right environment to encourage all its members to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives.

As of August 2019, Sport England is no longer providing general support for accreditation through Clubmark. You can still go through the process if your NGB runs their own Sport Specific Accreditation. To see the list of NGBs that do, please click on 'Are you eligible' below. For sports that do not have their own scheme; take a look at our Club Improvement Tool here to support your development journey.

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.
