Belfast Clubmark

Belfast Clubmark is our quality accreditation scheme for sports clubs which supports clubs to become best practice sports clubs. We support, assess and accredit clubs with the award which is facilitated by us in partnership with SportNI.

Clubmark has changed to become an accreditation for:

  • Junior only club accreditation (clubs that have members under 18)
  • Senior and Junior accreditation
  • Senior only accreditation (clubs must have no persons aged under 18)

Clubmark accreditation is based on:

  • Effective management
  • Community engagement
  • Quality coaching and competition
  • Creating a safe environment
  • Safeguarding members
