VRA is a sports association with members. The association year runs from January 1 to December 31. Membership of the club follows the association year and is tacitly renewed every year.
The cricket competition in the Netherlands starts in May and ends in early September, but you can go to VRA from the beginning of April to October. The teams consist of more than the required eleven players, so playing every week is definitely possible, but not necessary. If you want to become a member of VRA, please fill in the registration form .
Thank you very much for your registration. We will contact you as soon as possible to confirm your registration.

VRA values good sportsmanship and hospitality towards opponents and visitors. This implies that lunch is served during every competition match of the youth.

To be able to play and train, paying the contribution on time is a must. It will be clear that the Board will have to decide to suspend the right to play if the membership fee is not paid and that training may no longer take place until the obligation has been met. The Board will monitor this more and more strictly from the 2014 season.
Collection of dues by ClubCollect
VRA has been outsourcing the collection of contributions to NLCollect since 2014, now called ClubCollect. This is not a collection agency, but a facility organization that offers many advantages to both the association and its members. How does that work?
ClubCollect sends on behalf of the club, prior to the season to each club member an email, SMS or letter with the request to pay the contribution. These messages contain a link. Via this link you can make the payment via iDEAL.
You can also indicate at ClubCollect whether you want to make this payment (a) in one go or (b) in periodical installments (costs are involved).
Payment must be made before the specified due date. If you have opted for installments, you will receive a reminder by email, SMS or letter for each due date. If payment is not credited to the account by the due date, the account will be increased by 10 euros. Please note: if there is not enough balance on the account, the costs of cancellation will be charged to you.
If you have any questions about the above, please contact the administration or the financial committee. For more information about ClubCollect, see their website .
The [member list] (http://www.vra.nl/contact/leden) is visible to members and donors on the VRA website after logging in. Check there if your details are still correct. If not, have them adjusted right away. Without the correct data, the chance of errors and / or problems is high. You can of course also pass on the correct information personally to the VRA member administration .
Only in special cases can the treasurer decide to grant a payment arrangement or dispensation. Members who believe they are eligible will have to submit a request for this themselves and / or contact the treasurer. The scheme is valid for one year and is not automatically renewed.
The Youth Fund (Jeugdfonds) helps families with little money
VRA wants to be a club where every member, young and old, feels at home. Still, it can be very difficult for families where the financial resources are insufficient to allow children to participate fully.
Is it difficult to pay the contribution? The Sport & Culture Youth Fund helps! The Sport & Culture Youth Fund pays the contribution and / or supplies for children and young people from families where there is too little money at home.
How does it work?
As a parent / guardian you cannot submit an application yourself to the Youth Fund Sport & Culture. This can only be done by an intermediary, for example the teacher, someone from the social district team, debt counseling or youth care. He or she knows the rules of the game and whether j
Frequently Asked Questions
The most frequently asked questions about membership and dues are listed below. If your question is not listed, please send an e-mail with your question to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- I am new to the cricket world. Is there such a thing as an introductory membership?
This type of membership does not exist at VRA, but you get the extensive opportunity to train a few times first and get a feel for the game. Once you enter competitions, it is required that you become a full member of the club.
- I joined mid-season or:
I got injured during the season or:
I'm moving halfway through the season and can't play anymore,
do I get a discount now?
No. Membership is for the whole year. The club enters into obligations based on the number of members and must also make payments to the KNCB based on the number of members. We can therefore not give a discount. So make sure you cancel on time, so that you don't have to pay unnecessarily for next season, because the Treasurer is unrelenting.
- Can I participate in a competition as a non-playing member?
No. As a non-playing member you do not count as a player and we also contribute less to the KNCB that organizes the competition matches. If you want to play along, you can only do so as a full playing member. Report a change in your playing situation to the Secretary as soon as possible. You will receive an invoice for the playing part of the membership, which you must pay as soon as possible to be able to play.
- Can I pay in instalments?
Yes, if you log in to ClubCollect via the link you receive, you will be given the option to pay in a maximum of 3 instalments. There are costs associated with this.
