TROJAN CRICKET CLUB
University of Southern California
The USC Cricket Team participates in various Regional/National leagues around the year. Regionally the team represents USC (University of Southern California) in the Southern California Cricket Association League (SCCA). The SCCA league is the oldest and largest cricket leagues in North America and is host to the top cricket facilities in the country. With over 50 clubs participating in this league, and representation from both regional and national players from all over the country, it is also one of the most fiercely competitive leagues in the US.
The USC Cricket Team's Calendar kicks off in January, as the team participates in the Southern California Winter League (SCWL), which is a T-20 tournament played at the breathtaking Marina Vista ground in Long Beach, next to the Pacific Ocean. The tournament runs from January-March and the USC team won the 2007 and 2010 version of the tournament and finished 3rd in the 2009 edition.
Then, from April-October, USC plays in the SCCA League, which offers an endurance challenge as the top cricket players in the region face off to win the most challenging title. The SCCA league offers 3 challenging tournaments each season, the 45 over Summer League, the 20 over T-20 tournament and the 45 over playoff trophy. The venue for the tournament is the Woodley Grounds facility in Van Nuys, the only facility in the US to boast of 4 international quality grounds and practice facilities in the US.
The USC Team went 12-3 in the 2009 season to win its first SCCA title since being inducted in the SCCA League in 2003. The SCCA League is also home to many well-known international stars who play in various clubs across the league, including players on the USA Cricket Team.
In the 2010 and 2011 season, the USC Team also participated in the American College Cricket Championship which is held in Ft. Lauderdale in Florida. The ACC is the only championship which unites college cricketers around the nation to a grueling 5-day T-20 tournament. The tournament is held at the Ft.
