Kimble Cricket Club achieved ECB Clubmark accreditation status in autumn 2012
A fantastic achievement for our club. Kimble Cricket Club has joined a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritizing junior development and creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
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
Achieving ECB Clubmark status has formally recognised the excellent work we already do for junior cricket and will importantly give the club access to support and funding provided by the ECB.
The ECB has produced Safe Hands – Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children as part of its commitment to ensuring that the game provides a safe, friendly and enjoyable experience for children. Kimble C.C. is committed to supporting this policy. (See Policy on our Links page)
