Alvaston & Boulton CC Re accredited for ClubMark Oct 2015
This award demonstrates the Club's ongoing commitment to being ‘safe effective and child friendly’ cricket club. Big thanks to all our willing volunteers who helped us achieve this
. Every year we work with the various cricket governing bodies in ensuring the accreditation process is kept up to date. During 2015 A&B will once again go through a re-accreditation process to ensure that we retain the prestigious Clubmark award showing we are a well managed club.
What is Clubmark?
Clubmark is a partnership between ECB , DCB and Sport England. In being an accredited club we are part of a growing number of Cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development and creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
The four themes of Clubmark are
Duty of Care and Welfare
Knowing Your Club and Its Community
The process consists of responsible members of the club completing a Cricket Evidence File showing how the criteria for the four themes is being achieved. Once submitted to the DCB a visit is made by an ECB Clubmark Nominated Officer to evaluate how we have implemented and communicated the ECB Clubmark Policy's and Procedures.
Clubmark accreditation lasts for three years. During the three year period an annual health check is carried out to ensure the required standards are maintained , in the third year a review and update of Clubmark evidence files is required to ensure re-accreditation and meet any amendments to the accreditation process.
