Community Rugby introduced the Seal of Approval accreditation programme as a method of examining, maintaining and improving the provision of rugby in the Youth Section of a rugby club. Building upon current good practice, the accreditation programme aims to recognise the effort and achievement of those clubs that reach, maintain and improve on the required standard of a club committed to the provision of a quality rugby union experience for young players.

Community Rugby has worked with Sport England to integrate the Seal of Approval accreditation with the Sport England Clubmark Scheme to ensure that safe, effective, child-friendly club standards are met. Any club awarded the Community Rugby Seal of Approval will also have achieved Clubmark accreditation.

Teddington RFC is proud to have been one of the first clubs in Middlesex to have achieved this award.
