What is the Club Action Planning Scheme?

The Club Action Planning Scheme (CAPS) is a programme designed to captivate you and your netball club. It aims to support you to deliver a quality netball development programme and operate in line with best practice.

CAPS is aligned to the Sport England Clubmark accreditation scheme which is the only National cross sports quality accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections. It is built around a set of core criteria which ensure that accredited clubs operate to a set of consistent, accepted and adopted minimum operating standards.

England Netball relies on volunteers and clubs to help us in all areas, and they make a huge contribution to the game of netball. We have developed a toolkit to help you pull together the evidence you will need to gain the accreditation and will show you key areas where you might need further work.  We want to empower you to help increase the numbers of netballers in your local community, ensure you are providing a safe environment for your members and make sure important aspects of your club’s management are applied. The following sections contain lots of information and criteria to fulfil, together with the downloadable guidance notes and templates to help you be the best club you can be. Our team of dedicated Netball Development Officers, in every county, are here to help so please do not hesitate to get in contact – that is what we are here for!

Bronze CAPS is the first level, incorporating the Clubmark criteria covering the areas of safeguarding and protecting children and young people, quality coaching and officiating, competition, talent development, sports equity and good management.
