Club Excellence

A national certification program that recognizes clubs and associations that invest in building capacity.

The Club Excellence program is based on a set of 30 standards which are supported by tools and resources to help community clubs. It was developed by a group of like-minded organizations who came together around the development and delivery of a national, workshop-based program designed to help sport clubs provide quality programming and effective club management practices. Club Excellence is a fantastic way for sport organizations to live True Sport.
