BOXING FOR ALL – CLUBMARK

We are pleased to announce the launch of the ‘Boxing For All – Clubmark’. The Boxing For All – Clubmark scheme is a Club Accreditation Scheme which is unique to amateur boxing. Based on Sport NI criteria but developed specifically for boxing the scheme indicates that a boxing club meets quality standards in 4 key areas;

  • CLUB MANAGEMENT
  • DUTY OF CARE & SAFEGUARDING IN BOXING
  • THE BOXING PROGRAMME
  • COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Why in Boxing Clubs?

The scheme encourages clubs to aim for excellence and will assist the development of your club and community. Some of the potential benefits include;

  • Promotion and recognition of your club as being a ‘quality’ club
  • Positive perception of club among parents, participants and potential members
  • Improved opportunities to create links with schools, community groups, etc
  • Increased membership
  • Increased funding opportunities and volunteers
  • Better understanding of your clubs development needs

How?

  1. Please register at http://db.sportni.net/ips/external/externalregistration.aspx and your submission will be passed to the IABA office.
  2. A Club Pack with all templates will then be sent to the Club. This will include a portfolio which the Club has to complete and return to the Ulster CDM for assessment.
  3. The Ulster CLub Development officer will offer support to club to complete portfolio and organise an assessment visit to the Club.
  4. Upon successful completion of all criteria the club will receive a certificate and banner to promote their status plus their achievement promoted on the Ulster Boxing & Sport NI website.
