ClubsFirst is the England Hockey Board’s accreditation scheme for clubs. It is a national recognition scheme enabling clubs to demonstrate that they are working towards minimum operating standards. All clubs achieving ClubsFirst also achieve the Sport England Clubmark accreditation, a nationally recognised award for sports clubs.
Waltham Forest HC is proud to be a ClubsFirst accredited club. We work hard to ensure that we meet the standards set out by England Hockey in safety and development. As part of our accreditation we also ensure that all our coaches are DBS checked. As a club we are continually working to maintain the high standards that ClubsFirst outlines in its guidelines.

ClubsFirst is the England Hockey Board’s accreditation scheme for clubs. It is the “kite mark” for clubs that can demonstrate they are working towards minimum operating standards. ClubsFirst is aligned with the Sport England Clubmark accreditation, recognised nationally by National Governing Bodies, local government, education and the sports industry. In its simplest terms, the process ensures that a club has a “safe, effective and child friendly” club environment.
