Clubs are becoming more professional and better organised as they improve their performance and the service they provide for members. Some clubs are keen to recruit more members and expand while others simply want to consolidate.

Whatever stage your club is at, and wherever you are aiming to be, there are many resources that can help you. Including our Workforce Education Programme, which includes a range of courses aimed at supporting you to develop your Club.

Clubmark is a Quality Club Accreditation standard that shows that a club provides the right environment which ensures the welfare of members and encourages everyone to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives. We can support clubs to complete Clubmark accreditation for sports whose NGB does not operate its own Clubmark accreditation.
