Bicester and North Oxford Cricket Club - Clubmark & BNOCC Policies & Guidelines

Clubmark and BNOCC Policies & Guidelines

Bicester & North Oxford Cricket Club holds the ECB Clubmark accreditation demonstrating its commitment to prioritising junior development and creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.

The ECB works with Sport England on the club accreditation scheme ‘Clubmark’ to help to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.

ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating 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
  • Club Management

To ensure a duty of care to all members of the club, BNOCC has adopted and implemented the
ECB “Safe Hands” – Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children.
