Power Rankings are based on :
1 – Off the Field Performance – such as:
   -promotion of on Facebook, Twitter etc;
   -elevation of your Club & American College Cricket’s profile in school media & external media.
   -motivating increased support from your school in the form of finance,practice facilities, cricket field etc
2 -On the Field Performance :
– most recent, 2012 Regional championship participation & performance
– 2012 National Championship participation & performance
– 2012 National Championship participation & performance
Teams must play in at least 1 American College Cricket tournament to be eligible. American College Cricket now includes over 60 colleges in the US & Canada. We have many new teams not yet in the top 33 : Princeton, University of Memphis, Northeastern, University of Arkansas, University of South Alabama, and a number of others to be announced.
Teams can improve their rankings, even when not playing.“Power Rankings” are heavily affected by Off the field factors – what your club members do to raise the profile of American College Cricket. Here are examples so new clubs get a clear picture of what to do:
FIU’s Sagar Reddy & Santhosh Reddy are strong candidates (with York College’s Mohammed Suleman) to win the 2012 Social Media Promotion Award – they post every article on their Facebook profile ! This helped to vault FIU Panthers up to # 21 !
Boston University featured the headline “Cricket, the Great American Pastime !” & a moving graphic on the University’s Homepage that was mind-blowing !
As in other college sports,our teams must focus on playing other college teams,NOT NON-college teams,nor in non-college tournaments. 
Negative actions = Negative Rankings.
