Cricket Hall Of Fame Launches American Cricket Education Council
HARTFORD, CT – With a vision to “educate Americans” about the sport, the Cricket Hall of Fame (CHoF) here, has launched the American Cricket Education Council (ACEC).
CHoF Executive Director, Michael Chambers said, “Our Hall of Fame members and supporters will offer their time and expertise as key investments to promote and support cricket in the western part of the world.”
CHoF Board Director Jatin Patel in a satementsaid, “Our credentialing is to combine resources, expertise, and infrastructure to empower scholastic cricket to educators and faculty members at colleges / Universities with enhanced resources and professional development opportunities and strengthen the future of the cricket coaches’ / educators and institutional instructors.”
Patel added that members of the ‘Apex Panel work in a variety of settings and carry the vast experience with expertise in the U.S. education and sports system and in the field of cricket.
“CHoF will connect to its vast network of legends and Cricket Hall of Fame inductees, including professionals in all these settings,” Patel emphasized.
He also pointed to rapid changes in the sport of cricket that demand instructors frequently update and enhance training skills to keep pace with their expanding role and increased responsibility with regards to legal requirements in the United States to meet sports culture. The ACEC advocates for this rigorous education and training in various schools and colleges, he said.
Despite the first cricket game in the USA being played more than a century ago in 1845, the game has missed adequate and organic education programs with qualified and knowledgeable people to sustain the growth and development of the game here, the press release said. The Cricket Hall of Fame is the right group that cares about cricket and forming ACEC is one important step to make a difference in educational institutions with proper course work to start or expand programs at the schools and colleges, a press release said.
The ACEC is prepared to begin programs from the 2023-24 academic year in the US through CricEdu.com.
