2018-04-19: See below message from NTCA President Lovkesh Khalia that has been sent to all clubs....please follow up with your club pco/sco to make sure you are registered and also your club.


Dear Club Members:

 Hope this email finds you all in the middle of a great season. We recently communicated and requested your attention to completing membership registration with USA Cricket. It is extremely important that you as clubs/individual members complete your registration process ASAP. As of yesterday, the response has not been great, please see below for details. I would like to emphasize the need for us to complete this task ASAP as this could affect us in several ways (Please see below) and hence portraying our league in a negative light.

It is our sincere request that you please initiate the following 2 steps ASAP:
  • For a league to be recognized by ICC, we need a minimum 3 clubs with 12 players in each club registered with the association. Based on that criteria, we do NOT qualify as a league as of today.
  • We could lose our opportunity of getting insurance coverage, please see note below from USA cricket regarding insurance.
  • Not being a registered League/Club/Player will:
    • Eliminate our ability to participate in regional/National tournaments
    • Our players will no longer be eligible to be selected for junior/senior teams
    • As a league, we will not have a say in USA cricket administration plans/issues.
  1. Register your club if you have not done so already. The link is as follows: https://www.usacricket.org/membership/#organization
    1. Please note that you first need to register as a member before you can register a club.
  2. Have the players in your club register to your club. The link is as follows: https://my.usacricket.org/joinapi__login?id=a2P1I000000hzNnUAI&order=1
    1. Please pick your club and NOT the team within your club to register. Although a club may have 5 teams, all players need to register as a single club.

Last date for registration: April 24th

For any help or assistance, please contact: Syed Shahanawaz (Syed4@hotmail.com)

 

Insurance Info, note below from USA Cricket:

Individuals are covered by a Secondary Sports Accident policy that carries a limit of $25,000 per incident with a $500 deductible. I’ve heard the deductible is much cheaper than those policies that are in place with the few leagues that offer this coverage.

 

-For the General Liability policy, $1,000,000 of coverage with certs of liability, including for additional insureds, issued electronically.

 

One caveat to the above is that we are billed for both policies on a per member charge. In order for USA Cricket to issue a Cert of Liability that covers the whole League, we need most, if not all, of the League players to join USA Cricket. For example, I can’t in good faith issue a cert of liability for a League that I know has 100 teams and 1200 players if they only have 3 clubs and 36 players registered with USA Cricket. In that scenario, the cert of liability would cover the risk associated with 100 teams and 1200 players while the premium paid would cover 3 teams and 36 players. Not only is that unethical but it would likely be considered insurance fraud as well given that the premium paid doesn’t align with the risk accepted.

 

Please do look into this request as urgent, appreciate your help in completing this ASAP.

Note: Attached spreadsheet with information regarding clubs/members who have already registered.

 

Thanks,

 

Lovkesh
