2018-01-16 21:02 - Selection Policy document updated
Posted by adminmore from same (Australia)
AustraliaThe selection policy document has been reissued with the Commonwealth 2014 reference removed and replaced with a generic Commonwealth selection policy.
It was not the intention to review the selection policy at this time, merely to make it relevant for the Commonwealth events scheduled in the immediate future.

2018-01-15 21:16 - Commonwealth Cadet and Junior Championships 2018
Posted by Lambviccmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZWe have in the past few days been informed by the Commonwealth Fencing Federation (CFF) that a Cadet and Junior championships will most likely be held in England this coming July 2018.  This news varies from the advice given by CFF as late as November last year.

We are mindful that coaches, fencers and parents will have made plans to take part in competitions and not others on the basis there was not going to be a  Commonwealth Championship this year.  As a result, and to give everyone the opportunity to meet the qualifying standard, we wanted to communicate this recent information now although it is not 100% confirmed.  We would encourage you to read the Selection Policy which can be found here

Nominations will close on 24 April 2018 immediately following the NZ Cadet Championships.

Once we have confirmation from the CFF on the final decision we will provide a further update. This is likely to take several weeks.
