ECB Clubmark is an accreditation scheme for cricket clubs which shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members. Clubmark accreditation also means your club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their young people.
In 2021 ECB introduced the Safe Hands Management System(SHMS) which helps clubs with understanding and meeting their safeguarding responsibilities. This system is a key part of obtaining ECB Clubmark accreditation, but in addition we also review a clubs development plans for the future, together with key governance documents as required under the UK Sport’s Code for Sports Governance.

To decrease the administrative burden on CCBs and clubs in 2023 the ECB are not going to reintroduce the “Annual Health Check” component for clubs that gained Clubmark accreditation in 2022.
However, we still encourage clubs to stay on top of their admin so that any future requirements might be met more easily. The Clubmark portal will reopen for clubs to add or amend any documentation at their convenience from 2nd January 2023
