A Quality Mark Community club in the South West Region celebrated the Easter weekend with a successful camp for five to 14-year-olds.
Kilbirnie Community FC – thanks to the generosity of Kilbirnie Ladeside – hosted the week-long event run by Scottish FA qualified coaches who had gained their award through the Quality Mark programme.
The Scottish FA in the South West’s club development manager Graeme Mathie said:“Kilbirnie Community FC are a fantastic example of what a Quality Mark community club is all about.
"They make a huge contribution to their community by offering a host of football opportunities for young people.
“The Easter camp was a great success and I’m looking forward to the summer one planned for later this year.
“The club are applying for Legacy Quality Mark status which shows how ambitious the club is.”
The Quality Mark Accreditation Scheme is a key initiative of the non-professional game in Scotland’s One National Plan which seeks to improve the standard of clubs nationwide.
Quality Mark is a prestigious seal of recognition for such things as the level of coaching, governance and youth development within the club. There are three levels – development, community and legacy which are all indicators of the level of quality the club has.
