It is the policy of the Associated and Catholic Colleges to recognize outstanding individual achievement through the provision of Honorary and Representative All Star teams. These "All Star" teams are referred to as "Honorary" as an acknowledgement of individual selection where teams and individuals do not actually play in competitions. "All Star" teams that actually play in competition are referred to as "Representative". Previous to 2013 these teams were all titled "Representative Teams".
Honorary "All Star" teams are selected in athletics, swimming and cross country. The team is an "All ACC" honorary team consisting of the best performer(s) in each event across all schools and divisions within the association.
It is a great achievement to be selected in an All Star team across more than 80 schools. All students selected in an All Star team are presented with a commemorative badge and certificate of acknowledgment from the ACC.
