We are pleased to announce that the Guernsey Football Association have been awarded the Guernsey Sports Commission SportsMark for 2021.
SportsMark is the Guernsey Sports Commission's quality assurance award that recognises the high standards of welfare and safeguarding, corporate governance and financial management within the Association. It also reflects the fact that the Guernsey FA have qualified coaches, safeguarded volunteers and officials and are committed to delivering a Development Plan in conjunction with the Guernsey Sports Commission.
Local football clubs will also have the opportunity to achieve the SportsMark as part of their own development plans. Clubs have the opportunity to become England Football Accredited over the coming months. Once clubs have achieved England Football Accreditation they will then be in a position to apply for SportsMark. England Football Accredited Clubs will set the standards, raise the bar and fly the flag of respect and diversity for football. They will lead the game by example, as safer, stronger, more effective and more enjoyable places to play and enjoy football.
