[by Selection Committee] As the 2022 cricket season fast approaches, we are pleased to report that ACC membership is significantly growing and becoming more diverse. We have over 15 new male members joining and over 105 senior men’s players registered, and we will be entering an ACC 5 team into the competition.
With so many new players in the club, ACC has adopted a Selection Policy to make the selection process more transparent and understood by the players. An open communication policy regarding selections helps build understanding and a strong “club first” culture within ACC.
We encourage all current and new players to read and fully understand the policy which will apply to ACC team 1, 2, 3, and 4 in 2022. We expect that the team selections in all these teams will be much more competitive than in recent years, so it is important that all players understand the selection criteria, including providing your availability for all fixtures in advance of the season commencement.
We are planning to host internal club trials on the weekend of 5/6 March 12.00-17.00 at ACC (weather permitting) for players who would like to play 1st or 2nd team. Outdoor training at ACC will commence from the first week of April (again weather permitting). Club coach, Taku Kusano, will provide further confirmation on this in coming weeks.
In the meantime, should you have any questions about the selection policy, please contact any of the below mentioned selection committee members.
