ClubMark

Herts Baseball Club is currently working towards achieving ClubMark accreditation.

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 Sport 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.
