The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme ‘Clubmark’ to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
- Duty of Care and Safeguarding Children
- The Cricket Programme
- Knowing your club and its Community – One Game
- Club Management
The Clubmark structure is currently being revised and will not be running this year - Further information can be found here. The SCF will be undertaking club development visits/health checks this year which your cricket development officer will be in contact with you about. If you require further information regarding Clubmark then please contact Simon Hards on firstname.lastname@example.org
