RFU Whole Club Accreditation and Sport England Clubmark
Westcombe Park RFC is proud to announce to all members that it has been awarded the RFU Whole Club Accreditation and Sport England Clubmark.
The RFU describes Accreditation as:
“The RFU Accreditation recognises the effort and achievement of volunteers in reaching the standard required in the development of rugby across the whole club, and to plan for the long term sustainability of the club and rugby union.
Clubs are assessed by the RFU and must demonstrate evidence of good practice in areas such as club management, player development and recruitment, child protection, sports equity, coaching, refereeing and volunteering.
The Rugby Football Union Club Accreditation scheme aims to help all rugby clubs in England become stronger, more effective, more efficient and more enjoyable places to play rugby.
Accreditation earns advantages like the Sport England Clubmark recognising the excellence of the club’s mini and youth section together with increased status and credibility with local authorities, educational establishments and potential sponsors.”
As a club, Westcombe Park is proud of the effort put in by all volunteers from all age groups who have made this achievement possible. I would like to say a special thank you to Niall Finucane, Chris Sands, Matt Mitchell and Debby Park for all their hard work.
