The ECB have today confirmed that the club has retained its Clubmark status.
Clubmark is the universally acknowledged cross sport accreditation scheme for community sports clubs. It is based on criteria which must be supported by specific evidence. Based on four key areas of club development it centres around:
- Activity/playing programmes - this includes, for example, coaching qualifications required, insurance and coach to participant ratios
- Duty of care and welfare - appropriate risk assessments, health and safety policies, training, compliance and child protection policies
- Knowing your club and its community - this ensures that your club is committed to fairness and equity in respect of the way in seeks to attract and retain members from your local community
- Club management - which covers issues to do with club and committee structures and the general running of the organisation
In their email to us, the ECB said, "Having a network of safe, family friendly and well organised clubs is vital for the future of the game and maintaining Clubmark status shows that you and your volunteers are at the forefront of this".
Great work by James for securing our reaccreditation again.
