The Hertfordshire Orienteering Club has achieved Sport England Clubmark accreditation.

Sport England’s Clubmark is a cross-sport accreditation for sports clubs with junior sections in recognition of a quality club. It is awarded through national governing bodies of sport, in our case British Orienteering. This single, national standard, helps give sports clubs with a junior section a structure and direction that will benefit them in several ways:

  • Increasing membership by demonstrating that issues such as equality and child protection have been addressed gives confidence to parents choosing a club for their children.
  • Developing HH by encouraging and attracting young members, helping to build a strong future.
  • Developing our coaches and volunteers through help and advice given to develop the skills of everyone involved in HH.
  • Raising HH’s profile with a listing on the national database and in other sporting directories that will help us attract new members and to grow.
