Club Accreditation

Clubmark NI

Club Mark NI is Northern Ireland’s quality standard for sports clubs created by Sport Northern Ireland and Administered by the North West Cricket Union for Cricket Clubs within the North West.

This programme aims to identify, develop, accredit and recognise high quality sports clubs and the contribution that they make to the development of sport in Northern Ireland.

To gain Clubmark NI accreditation, clubs are required to evidence compliance with the core Clubmark NI criteria and sport specific criteria.

Sport Northern Ireland value the essential and significant role that sports clubs play in the development of sport:

providing outlets for participation

quality environments for talented young athletes to develop

competitive opportunities offered by clubs


An accredited club is recognised as a safe, regarding and quality environment for participants of all ages to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives.
