ClubMark is a cross-sport accreditation scheme for community clubs that has raised the standards of delivery, welfare and programmes within clubs


Welcome to the ClubMark accreditation system for hockey - England Hockey ClubMark. This process is more streamlined than ever and hopefully a useful tool for your club.

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 structured to make it easy to follow, encompassing a minimum operating standard and ensuring that the criteria is relevant to all clubs. 

What is the purpose?

England Hockey ClubMark is designed to set a minimum operating standard for clubs to achieve and ensure that the appropriate risk assessments, policies and procedures are in place. It is a tool for clubs to check that they have the basics in place. 

We know that many clubs will already be meeting the ClubMark standard and in some cases going above and beyond the minimum requirement. Through the ClubMark process we strongly encourage clubs to evidence this through the ClubMark system. 

The clubmark process was very streamlined and clear with an easy to use web-based portal
