What is the Club Recognition Award?

The Club Recognition Award is a Special Olympics accreditation standard for clubs that reach the highest quality standard.

The aim of the Award is to support, recognise and acknowledge registered Special Olympics clubs by providing them with a process that will help them to achieve the highest standards. The Club Recognition Award is based on five key themes: Club Governance, Club Planning, Club Management, Club Development and Club Health & Safety. Some benefits of receiving this award include organised systems and structures which enhances growth and development within the club.

To register your interest in the award please contact your Regional Office.
