Joining a select group of cycling clubs across the country, Sulis Scorpions has fulfilled the necessary criteria to achieve British Cycling’s Go-Ride Clubmark status and now holds this prestigious accreditation. Clubmark is a universally acknowledged cross sport scheme introduced by Sport England for community sports clubs, which recognises high standards in welfare, equity, coaching and club management.
Clubs are required to submit a portfolio of evidence to show that they meet the relevant criteria, including suitably qualified volunteers, regular coaching sessions and club development plans. Throughout the application process, Sulis Scorpions demonstrated an environment that ensures member welfare and promotes cycling as a lifelong sport.
Mark Adams, British Cycling Regional Development Manager for the South said of the achievement:
“My congratulations go out to Sulis Scorpions on achieving Go-Ride Clubmark status. The coaches and volunteers work extremely hard to provide opportunities for young people to get involved in cycling, and I look forward to continue supporting them in the future as I’m sure that the club will go on to do great things."
