We are also Club Mark Accredited, which means the club is universally acknowledged to be well run and organised when it comes to:

  • Activity/playing programmes – this includes, coaching qualifications required, insurance and coach to participant ratios
  • Duty of care and welfare – appropriate risk assessments, health and safety policies, training, compliance and child protection policies

  • Club management – which covers issues to do with club and committee structures and the general running of the organisation


The Club is managed by a Management Committee elected at the Annual General Meeting each April.

Volunteers are always welcome. All those who run the Club, Coach, Officiate, Team Managers etc are all unpaid volunteers. Without volunteers, the Club could not survive. So if you are enjoying your time with the Club, why not give something back – your time. Please contact us.

All parents will be expected to assist from time to time, either at training sessions but more importantly at competitions. Senior athletes should also make themselves available to assist at competitions either before or after their event.
