scottishathletics Club Accreditation
scottishathletics Club Accreditation Programme (revised)
The development of athletics clubs is essential to the expansion of the sport in Scotland. They are the cornerstone of development and the most effective long-term method of delivery for the sport. Recognising this point, scottishathletics has identified club development as a core strategic objective. As part of fulfilling this objective, scottishathletics have revised and re-developed a new club accreditation initiative that will involve a two-tier approach:
Level 1 – Foundation Award
Level 2 – Podium Award
The Podium Award club should also demonstrate a formal link to local primary and secondary schools, providing school pupils an opportunity to train or compete at an appropriate level. The Podium Club should also provide club volunteers with structured support in terms of training, mentoring and guidance.
The club should also seek to support talented athletes in an appropriate pathway, both within the club and also, at regional and national level ensuring that all athletes have the best opportunity available to fulfil their potential.
What if our club has already achieved Clubmark?
The attached documents provide a list of the benefits for clubs as well as the criteria required to attain the Level 1 and Level 2 Awards
