Team Jets became the 21st Jersey sports club to gain the full Jersey Clubmark award this evening at their 2017/18 Season Launch Night.
The award, presented by Constable Steve Pallett, Assistant Minister for Sport, recognises sports clubs and associations in Jersey that have high standards in management, safety, coaching, competition and off-island travel.
To gain the award, clubs and associations must be able to evidence a wide-range of documents and procedures including safeguarding training, volunteer policies, DBS (police) checks, coaching qualifications, risk assessments, first aid training and insurances. This gives all those in the club, and in particular parents of young athletes, the confidence that they are receiving excellent coaching from qualified staff and volunteers.
Fully accredited Jersey Clubmark clubs are:
Accies Netball Club
Farmers Cricket Club
Jersey Aquatic Rescue Club
Jersey Gymnastics Club
Jersey Indoor Bowls Association
Jersey Judo Club
Jersey Reds (formerly Jersey Rugby Football Club)
Jersey Reds (Minis and Juniors section)

Jersey Surfboard Club
Jersey Triathlon Club
Regent Gymnastics Club
Regent Racquets Club
St Brelade Smallbore Rifle Club
St Clement Sports Club (football)
St Lawrence Miniature Rifle Club

Those clubs who meet all the Jersey Clubmark requirements but haven’t yet got a Level 2 qualified coach are able to be accredited for a Jersey Clubmark Management and Safety Award. Two clubs currently have this award: Archers of Jersey and Leoville Sports and Miniature Rifle Club.
