BHRDCA return to play update

With recent Government announcements, and assuming health metrics are met, we are planning for:

  1. Outdoor training can resume October 26, exact size of group(s) are to be determined
  2. Matches will commence November 14

A working party of 7 club presidents and the CoM have determined:

  1. Play will commence on Saturday November 14, under the assumption health metrics are met and the rules of the day allow
  2. The season will consist of 14 one day games, including finals, there will be no two day cricket
  3. 80 and 70 over grades only will be offered in the one day format

Junior cricket will be aiming for the same start date pending further information and understanding they can probably cope with less pre season. Juniors are a little different from a fixturing perspective with the need to work more closely with RDCA & ECA. Veterans cricket is to be advised but will take a strong lead from Saturday afternoon cricket in terms of timing.

The season start date and one day cricket only is consistent with Cricket Victoria recommendations and also aligned with other metropolitan competitions.

There are ongoing meetings between Cricket Victoria along with state and local government seeking clarification about resumption of training and matches. We are also seeking clarification on Covid practices clubs and venues will need to have in place to ensure training and games can proceed.

Continual updates are being shared with your club presidents and will be provided as the picture becomes clearer.

With regional Victoria easing restrictions, including non contact sport commencing, as well as other states, and territories, starting their seasons we will have real examples of how the new environment looks and operates to help us get our season going.

Stay safe.  BHRDCA CoM

 

The BHRDCA turns 130

Happy Birthday to the BHRDCA – on this day (5th September 1890), the BHRDCA was founded

130 summers later as we prepare for season 2020/21 the challenges we face administering & playing under COVID conditions will be unusual, different and feel strange and awkward to many Clubs, Officials and players, however the competition has survived the ravages of World Wars, Bush Fires, Depressions and other disasters and gone from strength to strength over thirteen decades.

Stick together as Clubs, Officials and Players committed to the great sport that is cricket and we will get through the current challenge as well as our predecessors did when confronted with theirs.

Happy Fathers day to the Dads this weekend also…

BHRDCA Competition Season in MyCricket set to 2020/21

All Clubs & MyCricket Administrators,

Having completed all administration and closed all outstanding matches for the 2019/20 season, the administration season for MyCricket has now been set to 2020/21, as has the default MyCricket season for all BHRDCA Member Clubs.

In a program change provided by MyCricket Support, this update has also copied across all recorded 2019/20 Office Bearers, so should Clubs have altered these positions since the completion of the 2019/20 season, the Club MyCricket Administrator will need to update these records.

If anyone has any issue associated with this update please contact the BHRDCA Admin. Mgr.

Regards,

BHRDCA CoM

BHRDCA – A Sport For All Nomination Recognition

BHRDCA Nominated for Community Cricket Association of the Year

The BHRDCA was delighted to be nominated in this category under the recent Cricket Victoria ‘Sport for All’ awards.

Whilst not winning the award, to be nominated is great recognition for our association, clubs, players, umpires, many volunteers, sponsors and all involved in the BHRDCA.

We were nominated based on our collaborative approach, prepared to look at new ideas, open your minds to outside your own bubble, support CV programs, a mindset of being prepared to listen to the club’s needs, work well as a team’ amongst other traits.

These awards are the pinnacle of the community cricket season and we will certainly ‘tap into’ CV to better understand where best practices lie and how we can bring those to the association and our member clubs.

Below is a letter of acknowledgement from Andrew Ingleton, Cricket Victoria CEO.

Community Sporting Clubs | Thriving Through Crisis Workshops – thanks to sponsor Club Builder & Grants Professional

Community Sporting Clubs | Thriving Through Crisis Workshops – thanks to sponsor Club Builder & Grants Professional

The Thriving Through Crisis  workshops are designed to get community sporting leaders talking constructively about the current COVID-19 crisis and more importantly, how to survive and thrive through it.  We will talk about what clubs need to be doing to secure the organisation and its membership in the short term (right now); what clubs can be doing over the next two to six months to capitalise on opportunities as they arise – and they will; what clubs can be doing six to nine months from now (and beyond) to ensure that they come out of this period stronger than ever.

UPDATE From BHRDCA CoM 26th March 2020

We are living in amazing and unprecedented times that are providing enormous challenges for everyone in every aspect of daily life.

 Cricket may well be the least of those for some people and that is acknowledged.

Many clubs have had to cancel presentation day, or night, which is a tough call especially when we should be celebrating individual and team success.

Similarly, the BHRDCA presentation night, scheduled for April 3rd, cannot proceed in the current environment.

We do propose to hold this in the future and acknowledge those that have achieved success this season, our valued sponsors and other key stakeholders that are strong supporters of the association. The timing of this is, however, unclear today.

There has  been emails sent to our sponsors in the interim thanking them for their support and assuring them that when the sun comes up again, we will be here and we hope our partnership continues. We will continue to promote them where possible via the website and social media. If an opportunity presents to support them then I am sure they would love to hear from anyone within the BHRDCA community, and let them know you are part of the BHRDCA community.

The CoM are planning as we normally would for the pre AGM and AGM although the challenge of how to hold those events is still to be resolved. No doubt clubs will be faced with similar challenges and we will work through the logistics as best we can or consider postponing the scheduled events based on Government advice and rules imposed.

We trust that everyone, and your loved ones, stay safe through the turmoil and we all get out the other side bigger and stronger. With the absence of AFL and many other local sports, it underlines what an important role sporting clubs play in the local community and why so many volunteers give their time to ensure it is a thriving and vibrant environment within each club. It will be a great day when the clubs are populated and buzzing again.

Let’s stay the course together and look out for each other.

Regards

BHRDCA CoM

BHRDCA UPDATE ON KOOKABURRA RAY McINTOSH SHIELD GRAND FINAL 20/3/2020/10.25AM

BHRDCA UPDATE ON KOOKABURRA RAY McINTOSH SHIELD GRAND FINAL

After much deliberation and debate, the decision is not to continue day two of the game.

There has been a lot of information presented this week, and continues to be so. From Federal and State Government, peak state and national sporting bodies, other cricket associations and some of it is conflicting and varying.

The decision not to play is a unified one between the two competing clubs, umpires, host club East Burwood and the Committee of Management.

There is no right or wrong decision in the current environment and everyone has a situation that is slightly different and needs consideration.

As per the BHRDCA rules, Forest Hill CC are Kookaburra Ray McIntosh Shield premiers for 2019/20.

The CoM would especially like to acknowledge the outstanding leadership of respective clubs presidents in Andrew Grealy (HCC) and Ken Thomas (FHCC) this week in gathering as much information as possible, convening meetings and capturing all points of view within their respective clubs to arrive at a decision.

Regards

BHRDCA CoM
