Stroud Cricket Club holds Clubmark Accreditation.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs 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.
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.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to reflect on the purpose of their club, review operational practice and procedures as well as acknowledging and championing existing practices.
Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation and impact across four different themes, reflected 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
The Club has adopted the ECB Club Inclusion & Diversity Policy “One Game” and “Safe Hands” Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children
