Aspatria Hornets have been awarded Clubmark accreditation, following the club working closely with Alan Davidson from the Rugby Football League.
Club Chairman, Peter Thorndike, said “This is a proud moment for the club and bears testament to the hard work, dedication and endless hours of voluntary coaching and training carried out by all the coaches and team of volunteers.
“Honorary Secretary, Keith Morley added: “Clubmark provides assurance to parents and carers that the club takes its duty of care seriously by ensuring it has up to date and effective child protection policies and procedures in place.
It recognises that the club delivers high quality coaching by fully qualified and coaches, that it offers an inclusive, friendly and welcoming environment, and that the club is well managed with links in the community”.
Keith also confirmed that the achievement of Clubmark will now provide a further springboard for the club to raise the funds it needs to make the improvements that are being planned for new pitch at Beacon Hill.
He said “We have ambitious plans for the future development of the club, with membership growing, we need to keep moving forward in terms of facilities, equipment and the coaching programme we offer.”
