Wakefield Wildcats were delighted to receive ‘Clubmark Gold’, a Sport England recognised award for good practice, a few months ago and were presented with their certificate last week.
This demonstrates that The Club can meet the highest criteria set by the RFL to providing a safe environment in which to play rugby league. The club ensures that it follows best practice in areas including safeguarding, child protection, club management and community development.
Junior coaching is a very important department here at the Club due to the youth development scheme that is in place and to be awarded with ‘Clubmark Gold’ is a great achievement that highlights the quality and standards of the work carried out by coaching staff and the community team.
RFL Service Area Coordinator Craig Robinson visited the Rapid Solicitors Stadium on Friday to present the club with the Clubmark Gold official certificate. Wildcats Project Manager Sarah Robinson and Community Trust Manager Davide Longo accepted the certificate and had their photo taken with Craig on the pitch.
Speaking earlier Davide Longo, Wildcats Community Trust Manager said, “We’ve had Clubmark since 2008 and Clubmark Gold is the advance kitemark on the original Clubmark accreditation.”
”It is great news that we have been recognised with this accreditation ensuring that Wakefield Wildcats and Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust not only adheres to all the policies set by the RFL, but exceeds quality standards in areas such as safeguarding and community development .”
This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
