Wellesbourne Cricket Club - WCC - Clubmark

Wellesbourne CC - Clubmark accredited (September 2014)

Sport England recognises and values the commitment made by sports clubs to develop high quality, welcoming environments for young participants. The development of clubs that encourage young people to take-up sport, improve their talents, possibly play a leadership role and give them the option to initiate and maintain life-long participation in sport is an essential part of supporting the sporting infrastructure in England.

Clubmark accreditation is administered by Sport England and is awarded to clubs that comply with minimum operating standards in four areas:

  • The playing programme
  • Duty of care and safeguarding and protecting children and young people
  • Knowing your club and its community
  • Club management
As part of the accreditation the club has to have a number of procedures and policies in place which are shown below.
