Hertfordshire Cricket works with the ECB and Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme ‘Clubmark’ to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
There are a number of people and organisations who support clubs through the ECB Clubmark process, including the County Cricket Boards (Hertfordshire Cricket), County Sports Partnerships and local Sports Development Units among others.
The Hertfordshire Cricket Development Team can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
- Duty of Care and Safeguarding Children
- The Cricket Programme
- Knowing your club and its Community – One Game
- Club Management
