Elite sport is inherently about excellence. The right to represent Australia at the Olympic Games and the World Championships (open and age) represents the pinnacle of elite sport, and as such is a privilege to be earned. The Selection System sets out the minimum criteria which must be satisfied in order for a fencer to be eligible for selection for these events. Fencers are encouraged to view selection as merely the first step in the process of achieving the performance goals they have set themselves, rather than an end in itself.
2013 Designated Competitions
In accordance with O4.2, the Selection Panel has chosen to specify all eight FIE Individual World Cup Competitions in each weapon as 'designated world cups' for the 2012 - 2013 season.
Process and Timing
The processes and timing of selections is documented both within the Selection Policy (for example, see section O4.10) and the relevant Operational Protocol (see here).
Updates to the Selection Policy
It should be noted that the Selection Policy as attached below should be read subject to the changes agreed at the AFF's 2013 Annual General Meeting:
* Section 1.1 now requires up to five Selectors, representing at least two affiliated State Associations, with no more than two registered fencers from any one affiliated State Association;
* Appendix H now has Commonwealth Championships allocated as a Level/Category E event
* Appendix A requires the addition of Under-15 Points (yet to be decided by the Selection Commission)
Following the completion of the last item, the fully amended Selection Policy will be re-published here.
