The National Youth Championships selection policy remains similar than the previous years with the state organisation being in charge of selecting their teams.
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the following exceptional rules are set:
- The maximum quota for each state may be reviewed in the lead-up to the event. Quota will be confirmed 3 weeks prior to the start of the event. - State Bodies are required to submit a list of selected athletes (including their contact email) for each category discipline at the latest 4 weeks prior to the start of the event. - Athletes must be ranked by the State Body in each category discipline list. In the event the quota varies, only the top athletes in the list will be selected to participate
- Any categories may be cancelled or postponed to a later date. Categories will be confirmed 3 weeks prior to the start of the event.
Finally, we advise that state and local government rulings apply and may vary at any point in time. This may lead to cancellation or postponement of the event at the last minute. Sport Climbing Australia will act reasonably and consider state and federal government advice. Sport Climbing Australia will advise all participants of any change as early as practicable.
Sport Climbing Australia will not be liable for any loss or damage due to the postponement or cancellation of the event, change of quotas or cancellation of categories.
