Sport Northern Ireland recognises the essential and significant role that sports clubs have to play in the development of sport in Northern Ireland. Sports clubs impact upon sport by providing outlets for people to participate in sport and develop their skills. With this in mind, Sport Matters: The Northern Ireland Strategy for Sport and Physical Recreation, 2009-2019 acknowledges the importance of increasing sports club membership, developing school/club links, introducing a new quality accreditation standard and accrediting 1200 quality clubs.
Clubmark NI is Northern Ireland's junior club accreditation and development programme. The programme aims to develop junior clubs across Northern Ireland in the areas of management, safety, coaching and competition and will accredit those who reach defined quality standards.
