Selection and Representation
Selection to represent Australia is governed by the Selection Policy.
Selection in some events is only open to National Squad Members, and other events National Squad Members have priority in selection.
From November 1, 2021 the amended Selections will take effect. In essence these changes will substantially affect cadet, junior, and senior categories as follows:
- Selection for International Championships (Asian Championships, World Championships, Commonwealth Championships, Asian Games, and other nominated championships) will be made from National Squad Members.
- Selection for HPC Designated Events will be made from National Squad Members.
- Selection for International Event (Non-Designated) are on a priority basis for National Squad Members but are also open to athletes who are not National Squad Members.
- Selection for International Events (Other) is on a priority basis for National Squad Members but is thereafter open to athletes who are not National Squad Members.
