ECB is in the process of creating a club development framework which incorporates ECB Clubmark within its design. The aim is to reduce bureaucracy and allow more clubs to access the most relevant support to enhance sustainability and improve provision for all involved.
With this in mind, to create some certainty within the cricket network as the new system is developed, the 12-month period from October 2015 to October 2016 will represent a year of transition from the current to the new system.
Download the ECB briefing paper (136 KB) for full details of what this means for you as a club and for leagues.
Want to be part of the new future?
If you are interested in applying to join the new club development framework to access support (CDF) and/or for national club accreditation (Clubmark), please send through your details with an expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also state what you are specifically interested in – CDF and/or Clubmark.
Please note that beyond an initial acknowledgment, active support for the new process will not be available until the online system is launched in October 2016.
Below is the list of clubs currently Clubmark accredited across Leicestershire & Rutland. These clubs are currently undertaking a new annual health check process during this year of transition.
Please don’t stop! It is important that clubs continue to set and maintain high standards and remain true to the principles and practices of Clubmark. In particular “Safeguarding” and “Inclusion and Diversity”, taking every opportunity to reflect on the purpose of your club, review operational practice and procedures as well as acknowledging and championing existing good practices that make a real impact.
