Nova Scotia Cricket Association is the sport governing body of cricket in the province of Nova Scotia in Canada, and is an affiliate of Sport Nova Scotia and Cricket Canada.The Halifax Cricket League is currently 4 teams strong, with the fourth team being introduced due to increasing demand of membership numbers in Halifax prior to the 2013 season and as many as 80 players registered in the league.
In the Annapolis Valley region of the province cricket sprung to life in 2012 due to the efforts of committed and determined local volunteers looking to grow a membership base for social and recreational cricket. With this came the establishment of the Annapolis County Cricket Club in early 2013 based in Annapolis Royal, and became an affiliate of the NSCA in early 2014.
In recent times the Nova Scotia Cricket Association has increased efforts to develop initiatives for building junior cricket. With the distinct lack of a junior cricket structure in Halifax all of these years the need was recognized more than ever to foster the growth of kids cricket from the ground up and gather more interest from youngsters in the schools. Heavy focus has been given to visiting schools and introducing more Nova Scotian children to the cricket, while also providing their school with equipment sets and educating PE teachers about the sport.
