We are pleased to announce that HHC has achieved Clubmark Accreditation
“England Hockey ClubMark is designed to set a minimum operating standard for clubs to achieve and ensure that the appropriate risk assessments, policies and procedures are in place. It is a tool for clubs to check that they have the basics in place.”
What is especially pleasing is when we investigated accreditation we already had all the processes in place and all we had to do was put “pen to paper” (which was a feat in its own right!!” (well done Phil Coghlan who took this project on and drove it through)
We had to demonstrate the following (amongst other things) that we have effective systems for running the club. This includes things such as:
Having achieved this, we will now be seen by England Hockey as a very credible partner to work with especially on things such as their new youth talent system, which is a key aim for us going forward.
“The board committed to achieving this at last year’s AGM and since then significant work has gone into making it happen. I would like to thank all those in the club who have been involved, both through the assessment process and by playing their part in all of the behind the scenes work that goes into running the club effectively. It is a great endorsement of our ability deliver quality hockey in a sustainable and vibrant club environment.”
