Sport England recognises and values the commitment made by sports clubs to develop high quality, welcoming environments for young participants. The development of clubs that encourage young people to take-up sport, improve their talents, possibly play a leadership role and give them the option to initiate and maintain life-long participation in sport is an essential part of supporting the sporting infrastructure in England.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme "Clubmark" to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure. To find out more about ECB Clubmark program please go to www.ecb.co.uk/clubmark.
Clubmark accreditation is awarded to clubs that comply with minimum operating standards in four areas:
- Duty of Care and Safeguarding Children
- The Cricket Programme
- Knowing your Club and its Community - One Game
- Club Management
Ealing Cricket Club received our first “Clubmark” accreditation in 2008 and has maintained high quality operating standards for the running of our club. We have adopted "Codes of conduct" for both adult and young members.
