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.
A survey of clubs who accredited in 2018 showed that 98% of clubs believe the scheme is important to them as a club and will continue with accreditation in the future and 60% of clubs agreed that going through the accreditation process had improved them as a club.
Over a third of affiliated Clubs within Norfolk have achieved this accreditation with 34 clubs currently accredited.
Clubmark Changes 2020
During 2020 and beyond the ECB are reflecting on how the scheme works and are consulting with Clubs and County Boards to ensure the scheme provides a solid base for Clubs to grow whilst recognising the time pressures which we know exist for volunteers within the game.
All existing Clubmark accredited Clubs will be kept up to date as the process evolves.
