The Clubs, Coaches and Volunteer section is a strand of the |Sport and Physical Activity Strategy 2011 - 2014
In order to provide the best sporting opportunities for its members, a club should be constantly seeking to improve, whether this be through facility development, coaching development, increasing volunteers or attracting new members into the club.
Clubmark is a nationally recognised club development scheme that has been developed and is being actively promoted by Sport England and each sport's National Governing Body.
|Clubmark recognises clubs with junior sections that meet high quality standards and have succeeded in meeting a number of criteria that are identified as being essential for a high quality club. A safeguarding and child protection leaflet is available for clubs, upon request.
If your national governing body does not currently have a clubmark licence, then contact the |Sports Development Team and we will be able to guide you through Clubmark Accreditation via |Active Surrey.
|It is important for any club aspiring to become a professional and safe environment for adults, young people, males and females to have suitably qualified coaches who can get the best from the participants. In partnership with Active Surrey, the Sports Development Team runs local Continual Professional Development Courses (CPD). For the latest brochure and to book onto a local course, visit the |Active Surrey CPD website.
If you are a trained professional coach and you wish to keep up to date with employment opportunities and information, visit the |Surrey Coaching Portal where you can enter your details and find work!
Volunteers are the key to a successful sports club, without volunteers sports clubs would not exist. There are various ways sports clubs can recruit volunteers, either through existing memberships or by contacting and advertising for specific positions through |Volunteer Action Elmbridge, the local Volunteer centre.
Should you wish to become a volunteer for a local club, or have another volunteer opportunity in mind, please contact the |Sports Development Team and we will try and assist you.
