The Clubmark NI scheme provides accreditation to clubs which demonstrate minimum operating standards in the areas of coaching, management, safety, community engagement and safeguarding. Over ninety local sports clubs currently hold Clubmark NI status, helping them to be recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives.
Sport Northern Ireland has now launched a new online portal for the scheme, streamlining the process for clubs who wish to gain accreditation.
Launching the new Clubmark NI, Sport NI Chair George Lucas said:
Clubmark NI is delivered in partnership with the eleven local authorities and twenty-two governing bodies of sport, who will guide and support registered clubs through the process towards accreditation.
Sports clubs can gain more information on the Clubmark NI, and register for the scheme, via the Sport NI website www.sportni.net/clubmarkni
