Victorian Cricket Registration
Victorian Cricket Registration (VCR) is your Association and Club's access point to the Australian Cricket National Club Risk Protection Program which provides Public and Products Liability cover for Clubs and Personal Accident coverage for players.
VCR plays a vital role in maintaining cricket's standing as Victoria's favourite summer sport. Understanding the demographics of the Victorian Cricket Community through VCR is a crucial component in managing state wide issues such as drought, access to facilities and the constant growth in our game.
VCR and MyCricket
The upcoming season brings with it an adjustment in the administration of the club insurance program with the first change you will notice being an earlier insurance opening date of July 1, 2015. This will allow clubs to access certificates of currency earlier than previous years in preparation for local government ground allocation processes and pre-season activities.
What else is happening?
- Insurance rates will remain the same as last season.
- The discount rate is $35 per junior team and $75 per senior or veteran team
- The standard rate is $60 per junior team and $120 per senior or veteran team
- Discount rates will apply as per last season with an extended cut-off date for registration of October 31. As in the past, Cricket Victoria will be invoicing registered clubs for the coverage provided under the Australian Cricket National Club Risk Protection Program. To streamline the process invoices are now delivered via email immediately upon registration, as part of the MyCricket / JLT Sport registration process. This invoice will be for the 2015-16 season National Club Risk Protection payment.
- A Public Liability Certificate of Currency will be sent directly to the primary email address nominated during the MyCricket registration process, along with a paid tax invoice, once the funds are confirmed as paid.
- Invoices will be based on the number of teams a club actually fielded last season rather than the number of teams they may field in the 2015-16 season. This calculation method will be used in the future, so clubs will effectively only pay insurance for those teams that actually played.
- To reward clubs for getting on board early, all clubs who are financial, have registered and who have paid for their insurance by August 31, 2015 will go into the draw to win one of three iPads.
How to complete the 2015-16 Victorian Cricket Registration
The information gathered via VCR is essential to ensure Victoria remains Australia's leading cricket state. Thoroughly understanding the Victorian cricket community is crucial in managing state wide issues such as drought, access to facilities and the continued growth of the game.
To assist you with completing the requirements of the VCR, this website outlines the requirements for this season and explains how to:
- obtain access to the MyCricket system;
- update your Club or Association profile, contact and census details;
- obtain your Certificate of Currency for evidence of Public Liability cover;
- ensure Personal Accident cover for your Club and members;
- and pay your club's premium
Full completion of the VCR requires each Club to complete six simple steps, which are summarised below.
Step 1: Obtain your Username and Password
If your Club or Association is already using MyCricket then you can proceed to log in to MyCricket immediately at https://mycricketadmin.cricket.com.au.
If your Club or Association is not yet using MyCricket please contact us by logging a support request at https://mycricketsupport.cricket.com.au clearly stating your State, Organisation Name, Your Name and Contact Details.
You cannot proceed to Step 2 until you have completed this step.
Step 2: Club Profile
Once you have your login details this is a simple case of completing Section 1 (NCRPP Registration - Weet-Bix MyCricket Component) in the MyCricket NCRPP Insurance Registration Guide which can be downloaded here.
You cannot proceed to Step 3 until you have completed this step.
Step 3: Risk Management
Once you have completed your club profile you should proceed to Section 2 (NCRPP Registration - JLT Sport Component) in the MyCricket NCRPP Insurance Registration Guide which you downloaded in Step 2. This step will take you to the JLT Sport website (Cricket's risk management advisors) to complete a brief Risk Management Questionnaire.
At the completion of the questionnaire you will have the option of purchasing JLT Sport's AssetProtect, please ensure you read this section carefully to determine if your club requires this cover. Asset Protect is NOT required to be VCR compliant.
Invoices for ASSET PROTECT be issued by JLT Sport directly. You will be invoiced by Cricket Victoria for the NCRPP.
Step 4: Invoice and Payment
As in the past, Cricket Victoria will be invoicing registered clubs for the coverage provided under the Australian Cricket National Club Risk Protection Program. To streamline the process invoices are now delivered via email immediately upon registration, as part of the MyCricket / JLT Sport registration process. This invoice will be for the 2015-16 season National Club Risk Protection payment. Methods of payment will be detailed on the invoice and include a credit card option this season.
Invoices will be based on the number of teams a club actually fielded last season rather than the number of teams they may field in the 2015-16 season. This calculation method will be used in the future, so clubs will effectively only pay insurance for those teams that actually played.
Step 5: Public Liability Certificate of Currency
A Public Liability Certificate of Currency will be sent directly to the primary email address nominated during the MyCricket registration process, along with a paid tax invoice, once the funds are confirmed as paid by JLT Sport.
Once you have completed the Risk Management you will be able to obtain a copy of your Club's Certificate of Currency for Public Liability insurance.
Please note that completion of Steps 1-5 only partially fulfil your club's registration requirements. To ensure full compliance with VCR and eligibility for reduced premiums, Step 6 is also required.
Step 6: Complete participant management
Whilst it is no longer a requirement for access to reduced premiums, keeping your organisation's participant details up to date is vital and will ensure they are covered for Personal Accident under the NCRPP. MyCricket enables you to upload new participants in bulk or as they join your Club or Association. It is important to update registrations as the season approaches and as new participants commence at your Club.
Your participant information from last year will of course still be in MyCricket however you will need to "Confirm participant roles for season 15-16" which you can do individually or in bulk. For instructions on how to do this please click here.
Update Participant Details
Further to reconfirming roles we suggest you update any of your participants personal details at the same time, in particular email and mobile phone details, as this will ensure you are able to utilise other features of MyCricket such as the email and sms features. To find out more on how to update your participants personal details using the bulk process please click here.
Whilst you will have selected a main contact person (Designated Contact) for Cricket Victoria we request that you also ensure you have recorded your Officer Bearers in MyCricket with the appropriate role/subrole.
The advantages of this are:
- Cricket Victoria can make contact with the appropriate person in specific circumstances
E.g. Contact Treasurer for invoice enquiries.
- Officer Bearers will be covered under the Risk Protection Program as they are listed in MyCricket
Click here for instructions on how to add a Participant Role.
Participant details are checked by JLT Sport whenever a Personal Accident claim is lodged. If the claimant is not recorded in MyCricket at the time of injury the Personal Accident claim may be delayed or denied.
Many associations and clubs request that coach accreditation details are recorded in MyCricket. Simply add your coaches with a "TEAM OFFICAL" Role then "Senior or Junior Coach" Sub Role and you will be able to record their CCA ID Number in the custom fields.
Compliance with VCR will ensure the best available sport risk protection coverage for both the club and its participants is obtained at a significantly discounted cost.
