Thames Valley Amateur Boxing Club is celebrating achieving the ABAE’s prestigious Clubmark accreditation. The accreditation recognises the club’s achievement in meeting Sport England’s quality standards for safe, effective and child-friendly clubs. The Club was accredited in September 2008 & again recently in 2012.

 



What is Clubmark?

Sport England recognises and values the commitment made by sports clubs to develop high quality, welcoming environments for young participants. The development of clubs that encourage young people to take-up sport, improve their talents, possibly play a leadership role and give them the option to initiate and maintain life-long participation in sport is an essential part of supporting the sporting infrastructure in England.

Clubmark was introduced in 2002 by Sports England to:

  • Ensure that accrediting partners apply core common criteria to ensure that consistent good practice and minimum operating standards are delivered through all club development and accreditation schemes.
  • To empower parent(s)/carer(s) when choosing a club for their children.
  • To ensure that Clubmark accredited clubs are recognised through a common approach to branding.
  • To provide a focus around which all organisations involved in sport can come together to support good practice in sports clubs working with children and young people.

Clubmark accreditation is awarded to clubs that comply with minimum operating standards in four areas:

  1. The playing programme
  2. Duty of care and safeguarding and protecting children and young people
  3. Knowing your club and its community
  4. Club management
