Why complete ClubMark?

Following the consultation with clubs on “What Makes a Great Club?” combined with Sport England’s review of all things ClubMark, England Hockey have devised a hockey specific accreditation system. 

The ClubMark process has been designed to help create a safe and positive environment for club members and to ensure hockey clubs are operating within the minimum operating standards. 

What is the purpose?

England Hockey’s ClubMark scheme is a tool for clubs to check that they have the basics in place.

A hockey club that actively engages in the ClubMark process will ensure happier, better players in a sustainable and vibrant club environment.

The benefits

The benefits of a hockey club completing ClubMark are both widespread and varied. These include:

  • providing a clear focus and vision
  • ensuring a safe environment for all club members
  • opportunity to grow club membership through adoption of club development plan
  • a pre-requisite to becoming an England Hockey accredited talent centre
  • opportunities to tap into wider benefits
