Halifax Cricket League 2014 - Practice Sessions and Registrations
April 18, 2014

Practice Sessions

Fully equipped pre-season practice net sessions for the summer outdoor season are going on every Saturday. This is a perfect time to hone your cricketing skills. These indoor pre-season sessions are a great way to get yourself that much needed batting and bowling ahead of the outdoor summer season.

Location: Bloomfield Recreation Center, 2786 Agricola Street, Halifax
Time: 1:15 pm - 4:15 pm


If you have missed our Registration Day, not to worry! Registrations are still accepted during above-mentioned practice sessions. Please find Matt Lane, Jay Vyas or any of the NSCA Board Members during the Practice Sessions and register yourself for HCL 2014.

Halifax Cricket League 2014 - Registrations
March 27, 2014

1. Registration Day

Date: Saturday, March 29th.
Location: Bloomfield Recreation Center, 2786 Agricola Street, Halifax
Time: 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Note: Registrations will take place in one of the community rooms until 1:15 pm, before moving onto the stage area in the gymnasium during practice (see further below).


This year we are offering the first 50 members to sign-up a chance to win a few prizes!!! A draw will take place at start of the season:

1st Prize - FREE membership (Get your cash back!)
2nd Prize - Clothing - Provided by Cricket Canada
3rd Prize - Apparel - Provided by Investors Group

2. Membership Fees 2014

Employed Full-time - $200.00
Students/Unemployed - $100.00  (MUST present Student ID card, or proof of status, to receive the 50% discounted membership rate)

Please Note:
We want to once again stress the importance of players getting down to Registration Day and signing up. Since the sooner the NSCA knows how many players to accommodate in the Halifax Cricket League, the better preparation and planning the NSCA can put into the season and make it as good a summer of cricket as possible. If no-one signs up day 1, we have no league and we have no season - so the support of everyone on this is much appreciated.

Registering to be a member guarantees you a place on a squad in the Halifax Cricket League. As with last year, the HCL season schedule features competitions which offer both Twenty20 and 40-over cricket matches which are played on Saturday or Sunday afternoons at the Halifax Commons. If you happen to work on either a Sat or Sun in summer, your team manager can roster you for only days you can play with the team. The HCL season runs from beginning of June through until October. 

We greatly encourage members to pay membership fees in full at time of registration. Otherwise please pay a minimum 25% deposit and let us know on registration day when you intend to make installment payments before season starts, we are open to a plan that suits your situation. However, ALL players must be paid up 100% of your registration fee before being included on a team roster and being allowed to play any matches in the league.

If you cannot make it on March 29th, there will be opportunities to register for the season at following week's practice sessions.

3. Pre-Season Practice

From Saturday March 29th, through to end of May, fully equipped pre-season practice net sessions for the summer outdoor season will take place and ALL are invited to hone their skills.

Location: Bloomfield Recreation Center, Gymnasium, 2786 Agricola Street, Halifax.
Time: Saturdays, 1:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Bring along your own gear, or use the provided NSCA equipment. These indoor pre-season sessions are a great way to get yourself that much needed batting and bowling ahead of the outdoor summer season.

All members old and new are welcome! Also note that the first session will take place same day as Registration Day (March 29th). So its a good idea to come down and register first at 12pm, then head to the gym ready for practice.

4. About the Halifax Cricket League

The structure of the league will be similar to last season. HCL will have 4 league teams at least, with members spread across each squad.

Season begins with the famous Deonarine Cup T20 tournament, followed by a regular season which consists of a T20 League and 40-over League (ending in a playoff system for respective trophies).

Returning members wishing to express interest in transferring to a different team this season will be assessed by the NSCA board on a strict case-by-case basis in the interest of maintaining a healthy balanced competition. New members can also opt for a preferred team when signing up.

Team captains and managers will be confirmed and announced sometime in mid-May, around the same time the league team squads will be finalized by the NSCA and announced to all registered players. Thus new members will find out which team they are allocated to.

Cricket Canada Kids Development Project - Media Release
February 26, 2014

If you have not yet heard the crack of willow on leather in communities around Nova Scotia, it may not be long before you do. Over the next four years, the Nova Scotia Cricket Association is set to receive a substantial funding boost towards its efforts to develop the sport amongst young Nova Scotians. This opportunity comes thanks to a nationwide development grant opportunity provided by Cricket Canada, under the auspices of the Americas division of the International Cricket Council (ICC Americas). Over the cycle of the grant, the NSCA stands to gain more than $50,000.00 through the Cricket Canada Kids Project Assistance Fund. This money will be put toward the development of young cricketers and establishing a broader base of support for cricket.

“We’re pretty stoked by the news our application was successful” says Matt Lane, President of the NSCA. “This grant is a massive opportunity for us and it really allows us to get more development personnel out schools and communities and share our passion for the game. We want to grow the sport from the grassroots and that starts by getting kids and their parents interested and fully engaged. Given the right exposure and environment to learn skills and enjoy the sport over a period of time, whether in school workshops and physical education classes, or in programs outside of school, cricket is a sport that’s easy to fall in love with”.

The Cricket Canada Kids Project Assistance Fund will provide the NSCA with funding over the course of a four year cycle. The funds will be used to implement a strategy aimed at getting more school kids playing the sport and providing pathways for the introduction and sustainability of junior cricket programs, teams and competitions in the future. The NSCA’s application was selected as the leading candidate from entries received from Cricket associations across the country.

Simon Bonnington, President of the newly formed Annapolis County Cricket Club, also foresees the benefit of the Cricket Canada Kids Project in the Annapolis Valley region of the province "I'm delighted that these funds are being made available to foster physical recreation for the youth of the province. It provides us with the opportunity rekindle Canadian interest in one of the world's most popular team sports at a grassroots level, and at the same time to further promote healthy sporting activities for our children and young people, with all the attendant benefits that brings."

Once their planning is complete, the NSCA will be hiring community coaches who will oversee the development programming. If you or your family are interested in becoming involved with the sport of cricket, please contact info@novascotiacricket.com.

Established in 1965, the Nova Scotia Cricket Association is the governing body of Cricket in Nova Scotia and an affiliate of Cricket Canada and Sport Nova Scotia. The NSCA is responsible for the promotion and development of the sport of cricket in the province, oversees recreational and competitive cricket in Halifax, and at senior men’s inter-provincial level (High Performance). 
The NSCA currently operates the men’s amateur Halifax Cricket League between May and October, and a recreational Indoor Cricket League during the winter in Halifax.

At the end, Yash Gugle, who top scored 49 in the chase, built the platform later in the innings and HFX-Red chased down the target in the 38th over. Yash Gugle was named Man of the Match for his contributions.

Congratulations HFX-Red- the 2013 40-Over Champions!

Following a very closely fought and well deserved victory against Newfoundland & Labrador, and convincing wins against both PEI and New Brunswick, the tournament came to a halt just after lunchtime on Sunday with drizzly showers gradually turning heavy and thus forcing abandonment of the remaining match against Quebec which was scheduled for mid-afternoon.

Despite the disappointment of the early close of play and not being able to take on Quebec in what would have been the showcase match of the tournament, our team went into the tournament extremely well prepared and looked every bit like Champions to all onlookers. The boys received high praise for both their professionalism and cricketing abilities throughout the weekend. Special thanks goes to Anuraj Gupta for all his hard work as Coach thus far this year.

We would like to give a BIG thanks to the tournament sponsors; Howzat Productions Ltd. and Titan GSG, as well as our Nova Scotia team sponsors; Investors Group (Jay Vyas 902-448-6181), Saini Synergy Inc. (Uniform Providers) and Jerry's Kwik Way (5465 Inglis St).

Final Standings:

NS - 7 pts - (3 wins, 1 nr)
QC - 6 pts - (2 wins, 2 nr)
NL - 5 pts - (2 wins, 1 loss, 1 nr)
NB - 2 pts - (1 win, 3 loss)
PEI - 0 pts - (4 loss)
