England Juniors Selection Policy for Interland 2010
Selection for the proposed International with Belgium, Germany, Holland etc (Interland 2010) to be held in NE Belgium on 7th March 2010 will be based on the following events;
- South Central (SOC) Sunday 1st November 2009
-East Midlands (DVO) Sunday 15th November 2009
- West Midlands (WCH) Sunday 13th December 2009
and all known form up until the end of 2009.
It is anticipated that juniors wishing to be considered for selection will compete in 2 of the 3 races listed.
In keeping with the objectives of the England Selectors to use this competition to provide experience, it is unlikely that the Junior Selectors will consider members of the Great Britain Junior Performance Squad for selection, but will consider members of the Great Britain Start Squad.
It is likely that the composition of the Junior team will be 3 M/W14, 3 M/W16 and 1 M/W18.
It is unlikely that the selectors will consider juniors in ‘bottom year’ M/W14 ie born in 1997.
At all events Juniors should run the course corresponding to their age class in 2010.
For Regional events juniors will be expected to run the following ‘colour coded’ courses;
M14/W14 – Light Green
W16 – Green
M16 – Blue
W18 – Short Blue
M18 – Short Brown
At the National Event Juniors should run their 2010 age class.
