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.
The 2014 AGM agreed to change the Selection Policy as follows, which is not yet reflected in the attached policy document, but will be incorporated into future changes.
1.7 The selectors shall not themselves be eligible for selection except for Veterans in the case of Veteran’s events in which case they will be considered to be suspended from the Selection Panel for the purposes of that selection(s).
2013/4 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 2013/4 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). Note also the fact that the Selection Policy is complemented by some operational processes regarding entry to overseas events (see here).
