Burnham Cricket Club is delighted to announce that in 2009 we received ClubMark accreditation.
By achieving ClubMark accreditation the Club has been recognized for its commitment to develop a high quality, welcoming environment for our young members. We are committed to encouraging young people to take-up sport, improve their talents and give them the option to initiate and maintain life-long participation in sport.
ClubMark is a Sport England initiative introduce in 2002 and is the only national cross sports quality accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections. It is built around a set of core criteria which ensure that accredited clubs operate to a set of consistent, accepted and adopted minimum operating standards.
ClubMark accreditation 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
Sports equity and ethics
