Clubmark is the ECB’s national accreditation and is used to create a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.

ECB Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members.

Clubmark accreditation also means your club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their young people.

Here in Gloucestershire we have 50 ECB Clubmark accredited clubs, which is a growing number year on year and for any clubs thinking of working through the accreditation, GCF staff are here to help and support.

“ECB Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs that has raised the standards of delivery, safeguarding and programmes.

These higher standards of safeguarding, equity, coaching and management ensures cricket clubs are safer, stronger and more successful. Here in Gloucestershire, we have a growing number of clubs who are Clubmark accredited. This demonstrates how they provide the right environment for their members, which encourages everyone to enjoy our wonderful game and stay involved throughout their lives.”

What does it mean to work towards and achieve ECB Clubmark?

ECB Clubmark intends to build upon the current practices within your club. Each cricket club that registers to work towards ECB Clubmark will approach the process in a different way and be embarking on the process from different starting positions.

ECB Clubmark takes this in to account, allowing you to work through the process at your own pace, utilising existing polices and procedures within your cricket club.

The accreditation gives your club an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices within your club. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a club development plan.

The emphasis of ECB Clubmark is self-help. It is like anything else in life, if someone else does it for you, you never learn or change your ways. The support resources in ECB Clubmark are intended to provide as much information as possible to cricket clubs, to use, amend and adopt within your individual club circumstances.

How can my club find out more about the accreditation and get involved?

As a starting point, we will meet with any club who is interested in learning more about the accreditation to discuss it in more detail and answer any questions the club may have.

Following the initial meeting, and should the club decide to enrol, we will align one of our Club Development Officers to your club to help and guide the club through the ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
