The USYCA will popularize the sport of cricket in the United States by promoting its adoption in schools, summer camps and youth organizations. We will organize children into community "softball" cricket leagues, and then channel children toward appropriate academies and training facilities for advanced coaching. We will add value to the local community by promoting an active lifestyle for all children through the playing of cricket.
Maryland Cricket League is a community based organization made up of cricket enthusiasts with primary focus on providing recreational cricket facility to local cricket community; and invite non-cricket community into experimenting cricket. We initiated Youth Cricket efforts in 2014 and today we have U15 leather ball team Maryland Thunder with 15 – 20 youth members. The main objective of this program is to pass on cricket to second generation children; including non-cricket playing communities. Since 2015 we have been getting 5 – 7 teams participate in our U15 cricket tournaments.
The Triangle Cricket League (TCL) is based around the Triangle Region of North Carolina encompassing Raleigh, Durham, Cary and Chapel Hill. The TCL's mission is to play and promote the game of cricket in the Triangle Region amongst both adult and youth players. Most of the teams in TCL were prior and in some cases founding members of the MACC (Mid-Atlantic Cricket Conference). MACC has been in existence since 1997 and has teams based in NC, SC and VA. Information on the MACC can be found here at http://www.macc-cricket.org. In 2009 the Triangle teams decided to leave the MACC and form their own league. A Twenty20 TCL tournament was played in late 2009 and a full season of league games began in 2010. A regular cricket season runs from spring into early fall.
