Club Standards / Club Recognition
To ensure that all our clubs are supported to operate safely, we will be introducing a Club Standards checklist.
The Club Standards will align all British Taekwondo clubs with other Sport National Governing Body Governance Standards and will be supported by CIMSPA (Chartered institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity).
Once implemented, all clubs will be required to meet a minimum level of compliance (coach qualifications, insurance, DBS, safeguarding, welfare and health & safety). We will also be introducing a tiered recognition programme within the Club Standards to champion clubs who are demonstrating good practice and governance (Gold, Silver and Bronze). Further details will be shared in the coming months.
Alongside our Club Standards, we will be looking to recognise the great work that is going on with our network of clubs, coaches and members. We are currently working on developing a framework for evaluating club performance (to include membership numbers, competitive success and community contribution) and a reward/recognition package that is attractive to our community. This will include expanding our end of year awards to recognise the work and contribution clubs, coaches and members have made over a 12-month period to Taekwondo and/or their community through Taekwondo.
