Santry Volleyball Club were presented with the Bronze Clubmark Award at the AGM in May 2018. Gary Stewart presented the award which was accepted by Heloise on behalf of the club and committee. The committee worked tirelessly over a couple of months to implement policies and procedures, develop their coaches, referees and volunteers and also created a 3 year development plan to grow the club further. Here's what Dovile Janusauskaite, Chairperson of Santry VC said about the programme and experience.
"Our experience with the Clubmark Programme is certainly more than positive! Perfect guidelines that are easy to follow and a lot of material available that helped us to go through the process swiftly and with a minimum effort required. It allowed us to identify gaps and have effective plans in place for further Santry VC club development. A special thank you to Norma for her super guidance and all the hand holding that helped us to achieve results to date. We hope that individuals and Santry VC as a club will grow more in coming years!"
VI Clubmark Programme is designed to support and develop clubs in various areas. The programme rewards those who meet the minimum standards set and encourages clubs to continually develop. The VI provide support and resources to ensure clubs are on the right track towards accreditation.
Below are the areas that the club will have to meet the minimum standards
The programme aims to help clubs improve their club structure and ensure formalities and policies are in place. As well as the opportunity for volunteers to begin the referee and coaching pathway. The programme covers a lot of important areas within clubs (including legal requirements such as Garda Vetting and Children Safety) and once completed will ensure clubs are up-to-date and in a strong and sustainable position. Clubs will be given access to the Clubmark Dropbox where they will be able to download templates and view other resources which will guide them. VI recommend that existing and new clubs use the programme as a check-list.
