For example an Alumni team playing in the West Coast Regional can have 2 Auburn alu, 3 USC, 1 Thunderbird,1 Texas Tech etc.
Contact Lloyd at Dogevpr2@aim.com if you would like to be the Organizer/Manager of an Alumni team, in any part of USA & Canada, or to begin a team in a college.
We continue to allow 2 alumni per playing XI for each college team (where school rules permit).
North East : whilst many of the colleges will be back from the Summer Break, its possible we may shift it back 2 weeks to accommodate schools which may be starting the Fall Semester later
South West: last year we had the first South West Championship at the end of Jan. This year, we will strive to fit it into the Fall Semester.
Beginning of Registration will be announced later. To participate in a Regional :
1 - your College Club must be a member of American College Cricket for at least 1 month before your Regional.
2 – must promote AmericanCollegeCricket.com articles on Facebook, even during the summer vacation. Being a member of American College Cricket means being active, promoting, all year- not just at tournament time.
