If your club takes the welfare of its junior members seriously and wants to provide a junior section that is recognised as being well organised, the ECB ClubMark accreditation scheme is for you.
ClubMark has been developed with Sport England to set down a set of simple criteria and a support process for you to work through that will enable you to gain accreditation.
ClubMark will benefit your club in a number of ways such as:
Support from your CDM and County Cricket Board
Support from your Local Authority Sports Development Officer
Support from your County Sports Partnership
Help with long-term planning
Help promote your club to the local community
Help with advice and applying for grant aid
Help to develop your coaches and volunteers
Priority for grant aid sources
More importantly the ClubMark logo can be carried on any club literature and promotional materials
which confirms your commitment to a safe child friendly junior section which will appeal to:
Local School Teachers
Local Community Groups
Local Authority Sports Development Teams
Getting your club registered for the ClubMark scheme could not be easier. Just contact your Cricket
Development Manager - Matt Theedom who will be able to send you a very simple and straight
forward Registration Form to complete.
Once registered ECB will send you, via your CDM, the following to help you work towards ClubMark:
Duty of care and child welfare
Coaching and competition
Sports equity and ethics
A Model Club Constitution
Model codes of conduct
Model equity policy
Model volunteer job descriptions
Model accident report forms
Model attendance registers
There is no time limit for the completion of ClubMark accreditation. Each club will be different, for
some clubs it may take a few months, for others it may take longer. Accreditation is driven by you!
