SASSOT recognises and values the commitment made by sports clubs to develop high quality, welcoming environments for young people. The development of clubs that encourage young people to take-up sport, improve their talents and give them the option to initiate and maintain life-long participation in sport is an essential part of our work to support the sporting infrastructure throughout Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.
Club accreditation is endorsed by all the main sporting, youth and education agencies involved in the delivery of sporting opportunity for young people as clubs with quality assured junior sections.
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
