ECB Clubmark Process - Step 2

Clubmark logo

Actively Work Towards Accreditation

Being PROACTIVE is key to getting the most from the Clubmark self-improvement and accreditation framework.

Taking time to reflect on the purpose of your club, what you offer and identifying areas you can improve will not only enhance the sustainability of your club but also help contribute to ensuring a healthy future for community club cricket.

The ECB Clubmark Evidence File including supporting information and templates have been put together to support clubs through the ECB Clubmark process. Your CDM or Nominated Officer will also provide assistance and support where required.

ECB Clubmark Checklists Folder

The ECB Clubmark Evidence File Checklist will help you determine the areas of ECB Clubmark your club is strong in, and the areas needing further development.

You complete the checklist by identifying the following for each required criteria:

  • ‘No’ - We do not have this criteria in place, we cannot provide any evidence.
  • ‘Working towards’ - We have something in place but it is not finalized or implemented.
  • ‘Yes’ - We can provide evidence of this criteria and demonstrate implementation.

When you meet with your CDM/Nominated Officer, they will work through your Evidence File Checklist, providing you with support and guidance where needed.

The ECB Clubmark Site Visit Checklist (378 KB) details the questions you will be asked during your ECB Clubmark Site Visit assessment (see Step 3). It is useful to look through the Site Visit Checklist prior to your assessment to ensure all criteria can be met.

Clubs take varying amounts of time to achieve accreditation depending on their own unique circumstances. However, the maximum timescale to achieve accreditation is 3 years from the point of registration. If a club has not become accredited within that three year period then it will be deregistered, but that does not preclude it from registering to work towards accreditation again in the future, when ready.

All the evidence you must provide to fulfil the criteria requirements should be as recent as possible, preferably dated within the last 12 months, and a maximum of three years old in the case of course certificates, as at the date of the Site Visit Assessment.
