Please note that selection for the European Championships is centered around an athletes physical, tactical, technical and psychological abilities. The squad will be selected on the 13 Dec together with the 'stand by' athletes for the relevant categories.

Please ensure athletes come prepared to perform as at 8 weeks out from the event good performances will be expected.

Point of note: I understand that only one athlete can be selected for any given category and more will be disappointed than happy, however, encourage athletes to focus on performance and the margins for error are minimal as they are at a major championships. The decision of the selectors is final and not would urge those not selected to keep trying and more importantly developing. A full regional programme for all regions will be in place for 2016 offering opportunities to compete in France, Germany and Holland. This is where vital experience will be gained and a stepping stone to the National squad.
