By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, Canterbury Cricket Club is part of a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
ECB Clubmark gives us an opportunity to review operational practice and procedures as well as acknowledge and champion existing best practices.
There are a number of people and organisations who support clubs through the ECB Clubmark process, including the County Cricket Boards, County Sports Partnerships and local Sports Development Units among others.
The ECB Clubmark requires us to produce a Club Development Plan with evidence of implementation across four different themes:
• Duty of Care and Safeguarding Children
• The Cricket Programme
• Knowing your Club and its Community – One Game
• Club Management
