ECB Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs which 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.
In 2021 the ECB introduced the Safe Hands Management System which helps clubs with understanding and meeting their safeguarding responsibilities. This system is a key part of obtaining ECB Clubmark accreditation, but in addition they also review a clubs development plans for the future, together with key governance documents as required under the UK Sport’s Code for Sports Governance.
New for 2022 the requirement for all clubs to accredit every year rather than on the previous three year accreditation cycle. Because of this the number of criteria has been reduced, but the emphasis on development and well run clubs remain. Also, for 2022 they were seeking that all clubs were to upload their evidence.
