Cricket Partnership Program

Dear fellow Cricket Administrators and Volunteers,

CPP_AssociationDownload a copy for Associations here

On behalf of the SACA’s Cricket Department, I welcome and invite your association's or club's annual registration to become affiliated with the 2014/15 Cricket Partnership Program (CPP).

Now entering the fifth season of the CPP, affiliation ensures your organisation remains included in SACA's annual Child Safe compliance statement lodged with the Department for Communities and Social Inclusion. Once affiliated, SACA's Affiliates and Club Protection (Member) Protection Policy qualifies your coaches and volunteers to access mandatory SA Police National Police Certificates which are provided free of charge through the assistance of the Office for Volunteers. 

Affiliated organisations enjoy the benefits of further risk management through automatoic inclusion in the National Club Risk Protection Insurance Program, with insurance cover for personal cricket accidents, public liability and management liability policies for incorporated organisations.

In 2012/13, the Australian Cricket Roadshow consulted with community cricket, identifying key areas of inclusion, volunteer recognition and support, along with club facility and development tools such as resources and coaching. SACA will again continue its Club Facility Grant Program for 2014/15. Last season more than 60 clubs received grants up to $5000 for facility developments, while over 50 organisations received small equipment through SACA's Gear Up program to help establish new teams.

A wide range of Club Development tools are available to affiliated associations and clubs through Cricket Australia's new 'Club Assist' website and from our local SA Government partners in the Office for Recreation and Sport and their STARCLUB Program. This free, self-paced, online club assessment tool assists organisations to be compliant with legislation and improve their services by supporting volunteers to meet their legal obligations, as well as adopt best practice standards.

The MyCricket platform now includes free updated club and association websites, and with the competition management system now linked to mobile apps, provides improved communication options. SACA staff members provide affiliated organisations in country and metropolitan regions with discounted coaching and umpiring resources, and promotional opportunities to improve participation through events and clinics.

I encourage your association and member clubs to utilise these resources, to cater for recent growth in entry level cricket, and to ensure our wider cricket community remains sustainable. Your affiliation with SACA clearly demonstrates your commitment to ensuring your organisation can provide the best experience for your members, and will help to inspire the next generation of players, volunteers and fans.

I wish all associations and clubs a successful season,

Yours faithfully,                                                                                               

Shane Bernhardt 
SACA Cricket Operations Manager
