Club Attains Clubmark Status


Vale Royal Athletic Club were awarded Clubmark Status by Sport England and England Athletics in October 2005 which was a huge bonus for the club.

In order to meet the charter mark the club had to achieve nearly 100 competencies which were assessed in the form of a huge file and visits by assessors to designate the club as "Safe, effective and Child Friendly".

The club had to make sure coaches were qualified, trained in child protection, first aid and risk assessment, along with a police check for coaches working with young athletes which were just a few competencies that had to be achieved.
