Clubmark is an important club development tool and helps clubs to be more structured, accessible and more organised.
Clubmark provides recognition for high quality clubs and there are a number of benefits that clubs receive as part of their accreditation (See Benefits Section).
Parents can also be more confident that their child’s club is a more child friendly and safer club and the Clubmark logo is provided to those accredited clubs to use on their letterheads and marketing information
Support for Clubs
Clubs are not on their own if they choose to work through Clubmark. Glasgow Sport will allocate a dedicated Sports Development Officer to work with the club to provide guidance, support and information to help the club to achieve accreditation as effectively and efficiently as possible. A Clubmark resource pack will also be provided and this has example templates for clubs to amend and make their own.
