A major part of the Go Clubs initiative is the accreditation program. The accreditation program serves a dual purpose:
- allowing a streamlined process for us to engage with and assist clubs
- to provide a template for the growth and sustainability of your club
Accreditation at the lower levels of the program is mostly about opening the communication lines between clubs and Council and ensuring that all of the regions clubs are healthy and compliant under the relevant legislation affecting the groups.
Council is committed to supporting clubs to become prosperous and successful. In doing so, Go Clubs will provide support for the ongoing development of clubs through a ten stage model. Most of these are requirements of the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), and those already required by clubs to book a Council field.
Your details will only be used by us to assist your club in terms of compliance with OFT regulations and the development of strategies in line with your club’s constitution. There are some fantastic rewards available by increasing your level of Go Clubs Accreditation.
Before a club can book a field or hold a lease with Council they need to be Go Clubs Accredited – meeting a minimum Level 1 Accreditation.
The ten stage Accreditation Program incorporates the following levels:
- Level 1 – Compliant Clubs
- Level 2 – Healthy Clubs
- Level 3 – Good Clubs
- Level 4 – Engaged Clubs
- Level 5 – Participation
- Level 6 – Strategic Clubs
- Level 7 – Connected Clubs
- Level 8 – Sponsorship
- Level 9 – Green Clubs
- Level 10 – Events
