Clubmark has reviewed the way Sports Equity is implemented and documented within the accreditation process in consultation with licensed National Governing Bodies and County Sports Partnerships. The aim of the review is to ensure clubs are accessible and inclusive and to further assist with the recruitment and retention of members from all sections of the community.

In relation to swim21 the changes are summarised as follows:

  • Both accredited clubs and those working towards swim21 will need to produce an Equity Action Plan as part of their swim21 submission. This may form part of the existing Club Improvement Plan or may be submitted as a separate plan. (Compliance Module,Element 13)
  • Teachers and Coaches will need to attend the Equity in your Coaching Workshop, (sportscoachUK) as they do now. (Workforce Development Module, Element 2).
  • A member of the Club Management Committee will need to attend “A Club for All” workshop (runningsports), however if this has not been achieved at the time of submission for accreditation it can be included as an action point in the Equity Action Plan, to be achieved within 12 months. (Workforce Development Module, Element 2).
  • Accredited Clubs submitting for their Annual revalidation will also need to implement these changes within their Improvement Plans.
