It has been brought to our attention that the Previous JWOC criteria were released with insufficient lead time to meet legal requirements. To meet these requirements, the JWOC selection criteria have been reviewed and amended. The previous JWOC selection criteria are superseded by the attached criteria that provide for 3 selection rounds as agreed at the recent 2015 OA Conference. Athletes will note that the previous 2015 Australian Championship events are no longer selection races. The selection races and selection criteria are outlined in the following attachment and will be used to select the 2016 Australian JWOC team. Athletes who have previously nominated will be considered for selection under the selection criteria below. If you wish to apply for JWOC selection and are not a member of a Australian High Performance Squad you will need to also apply to become a squad member.
Under these revised Selection Criteria for JWOC 2016 to be held in Engadin, Switzerland 9th- 15th July will be selected.
All National Squad members who are eligible to nominate have been sent an email from the Athlete Management Platform (AMP). Online nomination
