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 for some other events, National Squad Members have selection priority. The following summary reflects how the Selection Policy deals with overseas events. In the case of any inconsistency the Selection Policy prevails.

  • 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.
