The committee will select the best available teams to represent England, although where shown some teams will be selected as development teams to give them experience of international competition. • Where there is a designated trial race, athletes wishing to gain a place are expected to compete in this race and the selectors view trials as the primary means of selecting the teams. Where there is no trial or an athlete is unable to compete in the trial race, it is the athlete’s responsibility to provide the Chair of Selectors, Anne Buckley ([email protected]) with details of all performances they wish to be considered at the selection meeting. This information must be provided in advance of the trial race where there is one or before the advertised selection date or deadline for expressions of interest. • Athletes will usually be informed of their selection within a week of the trial and/or deadline for expressions of interest. • Selection of all athletes is subject to the agreement of the athlete’s training and racing programme between the date of selection and the representative race by the committee. • Athletes wishing to be selected for races abroad are expected to have a valid UK passport. The selection committee reserves the right to de-select any athlete who does not provide all the information requested (including passport details) within a week of selection. • For all races if the selectors believe that a minimum performance standard for selection has not been achieved, they reserve the right not to select a full team. We do not intend to send teams to international events composed of athletes who have not demonstrated the level of performance required. This information is also available on the England Athletics website (http://www.englandathletics.org/page.asp?section=611). Please contact the Chair of Selectors if you require any further information: Anne Buckley (tel: 07817 681826, email: [email protected]). Please note that at the time of publication some of the trial dates/venues and full selection details have not been confirmed. Please check the England Athletics (http://www.englandathletics.org/page.asp?section=611).
