TopClub is British Canoeing's scheme for recognising well-managed clubs who are striving to offer the best in coaching and sports development, and Gold is the highest standard. When BSCC first achieved this in 2007 we were only the 7th club in England to achieve TopClub Gold status, and we are now audited annually to demonstrate that standards are still being maintained.
TopClub incorporates the core values of ClubMark, SportEngland's "kite mark" scheme for high-quality community sports clubs.
The next challenge will be be to improve the service that we offer to disabled people and gain accreditation as a "Paddle-Ability Top Club". There are some exciting projects regarding this in the pipeline.
