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.
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.

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. The programme coverage and limits have been maintained consistent with prior years except for statutory liability cover, which is now insured under a standalone policy.
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.
Junior insurance will continue being captured individually, at the rate of $5.95 + GST (from $5.00 + GST per player in 2021/22).
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.
Senior per team rates have increased to $110 + GST per senior team (from $99 + GST per senior team in 2021/22)
The NCRPP was set up almost 20 years ago and this is only the second increase to rates since inception, with the first being last season. Australian Cricket has continued to work closely with Marsh to not only maintain exceptional levels of coverage for players, coaches, umpires and administrators, but to continue to also offer very low prices (well under $1 per match). The main reasoning for the increase in team rates is the increasing number of claims against the NCRPP and the average cost of a claim increasing over time. This has resulted in several years where more claims have been paid out than premium collected from the insurer, which has resulted in an increase to the overall insurance premium (not too different than your regular Car or Home & Contents Insurances which typically increase as number and cost of claims go up).
To complete your risk management module and receive your organisation’s Certificate of Currency, please follow the instructions at https://au.marsh.com/sport/certificate-of-currency.html

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.
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 2022-23 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 email@example.com 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.
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:
Full completion of registration requires each Club and Association to complete six simple steps, which are summarised below.
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.
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.
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.
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 2022-23 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 2022-23 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. please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a ticket to the Helpdesk here to advise the correct numbers so that the invoicing system can be updated accordingly.
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.
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.

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:
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.
