We aim to support the development of clubs and sports organisations by way of the following initiatives:
Kent Sport workshops
These workshops aim to enhance your continuous professional development. We organise a wide range of courses which are open to everyone interested in improving their knowledge and skills in coaching, safeguarding, disability sport, equality, effective communication and a lot more.
Kent Sport Connect
By registering, free of charge, with ‘Kent Sport Connect’ your club or sports organisation will receive a range of benefits including discounts on training courses and eligibility to apply for funding administered by Kent Sport.
Support and guidance
Club Matters is a free support package for clubs and sports organisations. It brings together all of Sport England’s existing support projects into one simple resource. The four key areas are club finances, management, people and marketing and includes online support, workshops and mentoring.
Clubmark is the universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports clubs. It stands for higher standards of welfare, equity, coaching and management.
Following a recent review of Clubmark Sport England have decided that it will cease on the 30 November 2019. Clubs currently being assessed need to complete by mid-November. Clubs due for renewal will be signposted to a new three tier ‘Health Check’ via the Club Matters online platform. Please note this decision does not impact sports who run their own version of Clubmark, e.g. FA Charter Standard, ECB Clubmark etc.
If you have any questions about this then please contact Stuart Butler.
