What Is Paces

PACES, Perth and Kinross Accredited Club Excellence Scheme, is a straightforward quality assurance system that has been designed to help sports clubs operate efficiently and effectively. It will help your club to take a systematic look at what it does, and decide exactly where improvements can be made. It is also a means of identifying and rewarding clubs that operate in a structured way. We have three levels for PACES accreditation: Bronze, Silver & Gold, each level supports a progression within club activity and structure.
