Clubmark is the ECB’s national accreditation and is used to create a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
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 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?
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.
For more information about ECB Clubmark or to arrange an initial meeting, please contact Scott Tremain – Club Development Manager – email@example.com – 07958 271 414.
