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.

By registering to work towards the accreditation, your club will join a growing number of cricket clubs across Gloucestershire and England and Wales that are prioritising junior development.

In order to gain Clubmark accreditation, clubs will need to provide evidence in relation to:

  • Club development plan
  • Club constitution
  • Committee structure and meetings
  • Accounts and finances
  • Adoption of ECB Safe Hands Policy and Anti-Discrimination Code
  • Club insurance
  • Compliance on the Safe Hands Management System

The Foundation support clubs that enrol by allocating a Club Support Officer who will be on hand to help and support them through the accreditation.

To obtain accreditation, clubs are asked to provide evidence that they meet a series of criteria. This is done by loading evidence onto an online portal and by demonstrating good practice at a site visit conducted by the allocated Club Support Officer.

If your club is currently not Clubmark accredited but you are interested in applying, want to register your interest or just have a general question, please contact Harry Watts quoting your name and club details.
