Victorian Cricket Registration (VCR) is your association and club’s access point to the National Club Risk Protection Programme which provides public liability, personal injury and management liability insurance for Australian cricket clubs.
The National Club Risk Protection Programme is designed to save clubs time, effort and money and provide enhanced cover and services for the cricket community.
While the Victorian Cricket Registration process also plays a vital role in maintaining cricket’s standing as Victoria’s favourite summer sport. Understanding the demographics of the Victorian Cricket Community through Victorian Cricket Registration is a crucial component in managing state wide issues such as drought, access to facilities and participation growth in our game.
National Club Risk Protection Program
The National Club Risk Protection Program is a nationally negotiated insurance and risk protection program that provides comprehensive coverage for Associations, Clubs, volunteers, coaches and players. It is designed to save clubs time, effort and money and provide enhanced cover and services for the cricket community.

When does the National Club Risk Protection Programme begin for season 2021-22?
The National Club Risk Protection Programme is now open. This will allow clubs to access their certificate of currency in preparation for local government ground allocation and pre-season activities.
Junior Cricket registration process and insurance capitation
Online Registration via the Play Cricket website was made mandatory for all junior cricketers from the 2019/20 season onwards and the insurance premiums for junior participants in junior competitions will be paid on a per-player basis at the point of registration. This covers all junior club cricket matches and activities. Clubs will not be required to pay a per-team cost for their junior teams.
The cost per junior player will be $5. This is a nationally set rate for all junior cricketers determined by dividing the annual insurance premium by number of junior club participants across the country. Please be aware that online transactions will include a processing fee of 1.95%.
If your club has junior teams participating in cricket competitions, the club will need to set up online registration via the MyCricket administration website. More detail of how this is set up can be seen here. You will be able to set up online registration from Thursday 1 July 2021 onwards so it corresponds with the insurance period.
Insurance Premiums and Discount Rates – Seniors / Veterans
Clubs will be paying insurance premiums on a per-team basis for their senior teams only.
$120.00 per Senior/Veteran Team
$80.00 per Senior/Veteran team
As in the past, Marsh will be invoicing clubs for the coverage provided under the National Club Risk Protection Programme. To streamline the process, invoices are made available immediately upon registration as part of the MyCricket / Marsh 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.
The discounted rate will apply to all clubs/associations that register and pay on or before Sunday 31 October 2021.
Your invoice will be based on the number of senior teams your club fielded last season rather than the number of senior teams you may field in the 2021-22 season. This calculation method is used so your club will only pay insurance for those senior teams that have actually played.
Club administrators are unable to edit these team numbers. Junior teams will be listed as 0. This is because Insurance for Juniors is collected on a per player basis. If you believe the numbers to be incorrect, please DO NOT complete the online payment process. Please contact Arvind Suresh at email@example.com or call 9085 4012 to advise the correct numbers so that the invoicing system can be updated accordingly. You will then be able to revisit the Marsh website shortly after you complete the process.
How do I complete the 2021-22 National Club Risk Protection Programme?
To assist you with completing Victorian Cricket Registration and the National Club Risk Protection Programme, 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 registration requires each Club and Association 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 directly to the MyCricket website to login to your account.
If your Club or Association is not yet using MyCricket please contact us by lodging a support request here– clearly identifying 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 Steps 1 – 5 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.
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 Steps 6 and 7 on the (National Club Risk Protection Programme Registration – Marsh Component) “How to Register for Insurance” webpage which you opened in Step 2. This step will take you to the Marsh website (Cricket’s Risk Management advisors) to complete a brief Risk Management Education Module.
Step 4: Invoice and Payment
Invoices are accessible immediately following successful registration, including the ability to pay the required premium online using a credit card payment portal. Invoices are not emailed to clubs but can be directly downloaded and printed by the user. This invoice will be for the 2021-22 season of the National Club Risk Protection Programme. Methods of payment will be detailed on the invoice.
Invoices will be based on the number of senior teams a club fielded in the PREVIOUS season rather than the number of senior teams they may field in the 2021-22 season. This calculation method will effectively ensure that clubs only pay insurance for those teams that actually played.
If you believe the numbers to be incorrect, please DO NOT complete the online payment process. contact Arvind Suresh at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 9085 4012 to advise the correct numbers so that the invoicing system can be updated accordingly.
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 Marsh.
Please note that completion of Steps 1-5 only partially fulfil your club’s registration requirements. To ensure full compliance with Victorian Cricket Registration and to ensure that your members are not slowed down during a claims process, 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 not slowed down during the claims process under the National Club Risk Protection Programme.
Along with junior cricketers being required to register with their club online via PlayCricket, Cricket Victoria strongly recommends that clubs utilise the online player registration system through MyCricket for senior players as well. This can be used by returning players as well as new players to your club.

Participant details are checked by Marsh 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.
Should you have any questions at any stage, please contact the relevant person below.
Any other questions: Your local Cricket Victoria Cricket Manager or Club Officer whose details you can find here.
Best of luck for the pre-season ahead!
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:
Participants, clubs and associations can contact the appropriate person in specific circumstances. E.g. Contact Treasurer for invoice enquiries.
Officer Bearers will be covered under the Risk Protection Programme as they are listed in MyCricket.
In MyCricket, each club will be required to nominate a coach for each junior team at the club. A coach must have signed up at community.cricket.com.au/coach to be registered to be nominated to a team.
Many associations and clubs already request that coach accreditation details are recorded in MyCricket. Simply add your coaches with a “TEAM OFFICAL” role then “Junior Coach” sub-role and they will be able to be selected against the relevant junior team. You will also be able to record their CCA ID Number in the custom fields when editing the coach’s personal details. For further instructions on how to add a coach to a team, please click here.
Compliance with Victorian Cricket Registration and the National Club Risk Protection Programme will ensure the best available sport risk protection coverage for both the club and its participants is obtained at a significantly discounted cost.
