Selection Policy

Training and Selection Policy Season 2023/24

This training and selection policy is directed at all senior players of the Kumeu Cricket Club. It is your responsibility to read these requirements. Your co-operation will help to ensure that training and selection run as smoothly as possible for everyone.

The role of the Premier Coach Akash Christian will be to take overall control of senior training sessions and provide skills coaching to senior players. He will call upon senior players to provide specialist coaching and will also be assisted by the Captains. The senior players group will take training in the absence of the Premier Coach.

Players must:
Advise the Premier Coach or your Captain when leaving training.
Bat and bowl at training in the same manner as in a game.
Notify your team manager, captain or club manager if unable to attend training.
Train on Tuesdays and Thursdays 6.00pm to 8.00pm, weather permitting and other scheduled training sessions unless otherwise arranged with the Premier Coach or Captain.

The appointed members of the Selection Committee for 2023/24 are:

Akash Christian

Stephen Nobilo

Fraser Jeffries

Each member of the Selection Committee will be entitled to one vote with Chairman of selectors having the casting vote.

Team Captains will input regarding player performance and form. 

It is the players responsibility to advise of their availability to play games and to update on availability on a regular basis.  Players are required to advise their availability on the Teamreach app by Tuesday of the upcoming weekend game at the latest. It will be assumed that you are not available to play if Teamreach is not updated. 

The Captains do not have voting powers.

The role of the Selection Committee will be to select the best teams possible, taking into consideration team balance and requirements for that particular game. Priority will be given to the first XI, the club’s Premier team.

Preference will be given, where possible, to players who train over those who do not. It is the club’s expectation that players wishing to be considered for Premier and Reserve grades are training regularly.

The decision of the Selection Committee is final. Our responsibility is to the club first. These rules apply to all players. Players may discuss selection with the Chairman of Selectors regarding their own selection, but not the selection of others.

Players must:
Be financial (unless payment arrangement organised with the Club Manager) to be eligible for selection, No pay No Play policy will operate .
Notify on TeamReach of availability for each game, otherwise you will be considered unavailable.
Play where they have been selected

Selection will be made on the Thursday before the first day of the game and team announcements and game details are made later that evening via Teamreach.

Players may discuss selection or concerns with the Chairman of Sectors and on-field queries with their Captain.

Any breach in the players code of conduct (Law 42) that will influence selection.


Kumeu Cricket Club has a strict NO PAY NO PLAY and NOT REGISTERED NO PLAY policy.

Please ensure you or your team members in the case of a closed shop team are registered to play the season on or before Wednesday 19th October.  In the case of a late registration please contact Charlotte to arrange access to register – 021885993.

Please ensure that your fees (individual or closed shop team fees) are paid on time or your payment plan schedule is adhered to.  If fees are not paid on time or payment plans are not adhered to you may in the first instance mean forfeiting games – which we will advise Auckland Cricket of especially in the case of closed shop teams – until fees are paid. 

Provisional Grade Spots – closed shop teams

Provisional Grade spots belong to the club and not to the team.  It is at the clubs discretion to advise which grade spot a team may be playing in.  Please do not assume your team you will be playing in the same grade as the season before.  If you wish to maintain your spot it is important to contact Charlotte as soon as possible to register your team and make payment.  Grade spots will be assigned to those who register their team, team members and make payment upfront.
