Scottish Hockey’s Club Accreditation Programme is currently closed to new applications.

Clubs currently with silver and gold accreditation will retain this status for the season 2023/24. More exciting news will follow soon on accreditation in line with the launch of our new strategic plan.

The criteria for affiliation have changed and are requirements for all clubs. Please see the affiliation page for full details.


Increasing participation in hockey, achieving high standards while developing coaches, volunteers and players, is key to a club’s success and Scottish Hockey
recognise that none of this would be possible without the dedication of hard working volunteers across the country and we would like to support and rewards these efforts.
As well as a suite of tools, templates and case studies to help clubs achieve their accreditation status, each club will receive ongoing support
from specific regional development staff. Once a club has achieved their status there are many rewards and benefits which can be accessed.
