During the Summer of 2014 a lot of hard work finally came to fruition as Thrumpton Cricket Club received official ECB Clubmark Accreditation status.
The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme ‘Clubmark’ to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, we can join 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 write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. We 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
