Nominations are called for from those fencers wishing to be considered for selection to attend the Australian U15 and Cadet (U17) Championships 2015 to be held in Sydney Australia, 4 - 8 July 2015.
Details and timetables can be found on the Australian Fencing Federation web site www.ausfencing.org
Nominations should be made on the Nomination form that can be found in the Downloads section of this site, and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 7 April 2015.
Selection will be in terms of the FeNZ Selection criteria for this event, with attendance at the NZ U15 and Cadet Championships a pre-requisite, unless dispensation is granted prior to the event. (Applications can be made to the email@example.com and must include a sufficient reason why the pre-requisite cannot be met).
Fencers should be aware that the equipment and clothing standards for this event differ from New Zealand domestic competition, with FIE standards being applied i.e. FIE blades, FIE 800N/1600N clothing, including the requirements relating to fastenings for gloves.
This will be a managed team, with a Team Manager and other team staff as numbers dictate. Fencers will be required to pay a team management fee.
Any parents who wish to accompany the team and assist with team management should advise the secretary on the address above. Any person wishing to be considered for the position of Team Manager should see the earlier posting calling for nominations.
