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 Liability, Personal Injury and Management Liability insurance for Australian cricket clubs.
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 participation growth in our game.
VCR and MyCricket
Continuing on from last season's administration of club insurance, the opening date will be July 1, 2016. This will allow clubs to access certificates of currency 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 - this rate will apply for all who register teams on or before October 31, 2016.
- The standard rate is $60 per junior team and $120 per senior or veteran team - this rate will apply for all who register teams after October 31, 2016.
- As in the past, Cricket Victoria will be invoicing clubs for the coverage provided under the Australian Cricket National Club Risk Protection Program. To streamline the process, invoices are made available immediately upon registration as part of the MyCricket / JLT Sport registration process. You will also have the option to pay the invoice immediately online.
- Your club's Certificate of Currency will be sent directly to the primary email address you have nominated during your MyCricket registration, along with a paid tax invoice, once the funds are confirmed as paid.
- As in the past season, your invoice will be based on the number of teams your club actually fielded last season rather than the number of teams you may field in the 2016-17 season. This calculation method is used so your club will only pay insurance for those teams that have actually played.
How to complete the 2016-17 Victorian Cricket Registration
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 Injury 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.
NOTE: 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 step 1 on the 'How to Register for Insurance' webpage which can be accessed here. In this step please ensure you update your organisation details, including your key contact.
NOTE: You cannot proceed to step 3 until you have completed this step.
Step 3: Risk management education module
Once you have completed your club profile you should proceed to step 2 (NCRPP Registration - JLT Sport component) 'How to Register for Insurance' webpage which you opened in step 2. This step will take you to the JLT Sport website (cricket's risk management advisors) to complete a brief risk management education module.
Step 4: Invoice and payment
Last season, JLT Sport delivered a Cricket Victoria invoice via email following the successful online registration of your club.
To streamline this process even further, invoices will now be accessible immediately following successful registration, including the ability to pay the required premium online using a credit card payment portal. Invoices will no longer be emailed to clubs but can be directly downloaded and printed by the user. This invoice will be for the 2016-17 season of the NCRPP. Methods of payment will be detailed on the invoice.
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 2016-17 season. This calculation method will effectively ensure that clubs only pay insurance for those teams that actually played.

Step 5: Public Liability Certificate of Currency
A Public Liability Certificate of Currency can be accessed in two ways. It can be printed directly after successful online payment, or will be sent directly to the primary email address nominated during the MyCricket registration process once the funds are confirmed as paid by JLT Sport.
NOTE: Completion of steps 1-5 only partially fulfil your club's registration requirements. To ensure full compliance with VCR and to ensure that your members are eligible for Personal Injury coverage, step 6 is also required.
Step 6: Complete participant management and updating participant details
Keeping your organisation's participant details up to date is vital and will ensure they are covered for Personal Injury under the NCRPP. Cricket Victoria recommends that clubs utilise the online player registration portal available through MyCricket, which also includes an online payment system. This can be used by returning players as well as new players to your club or association. There are many benefits of clubs getting their participants to register themselves for the coming season.
- Remove the tedious task for volunteers of manually entering participants personal details.
- Collecting payments via the Online Registrations process makes it easier for the participant (or parents) to complete the transaction, whilst removing the manually handling of cash by administrators. The transaction fee for online payments is 1.95%.
- Players entering their own details improves the accuracy and amount of information able to be captured. This helps when utilising the email and sms function on MyCricket.
- Details are automatically added to your MyCricket Person List. There will be no need for administrators to upload participant details manually.
For more information on how to setup online registration and payments, please click here.
As stated above, Cricket Victoria encourages all clubs to use MyCricket online registrations and payments, however uploading of new participants details in bulk is possible via MyCricket, or as they join. It is important to update registrations as the season approaches and as new participants commence at your Club.
To find out more on how to update your participants personal details using the bulk process, please click here.
Participant details are checked by JLT Sport whenever a Personal Injury claim is lodged. If the claimant is not recorded in MyCricket at the time of injury the Personal Injury claim may be delayed or denied.
Your participant information from last year will of course still be in MyCricket however you will need to 'Confirm participant roles for season 16-17' which you can do individually or in bulk. For instructions on how to do this, 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/Sub Role. 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.
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.
