Archery GB heard today that its representation to UK Sport on its decision to end funding of its World Class Programme, has been unsuccessful.
Clubmark is Sport England's universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports Clubs.
Clubmark aims to make sure the nation's sports Club infrastructure is safer, stronger and more successful and stands for higher standards of welfare, equality, coaching and management in community sports Clubs.
It will show that your Club provides the right environment ensuring the welfare of members and encouraging everyone to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives.
An accredited Club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as helping parents and carers know that they're choosing the right Club for their young people.
Clubmark can help you to improve your club by..
• Setting clear goals and objectives

• Updating policies, training and systems
• Accredited Clubs are able to use Sainsbury's Active Kids scheme

Archery GB's club development programme - ontarget - is available for Archery GB affiliated clubs. The programme is not linked to Clubmark, however archery clubs can do both programmes should they wish.
ontarget was developed so that we can recognise and reward those clubs that are already working hard in specific areas of the sport and also to help those with aspirations to develop specific features of their club.
