By registering to work towards the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) Clubmark, clubs will join a growing number of cricket clubs across Lancashire and England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
The Lancashire Cricket Foundation supports clubs through the ECB Clubmark process and works closely with County Sports Partnerships and local Sports Development Units to assist with this process.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to review its operational practice and procedures, as well as to acknowledge and champion 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 of Children
- The Cricket Programme
- Knowing Your Club and its Community – One Game
- Club Management
