Interested athletes will be asked to complete the application form. All applications will then be submitted to the coaching/management group for consideration.
The selection panel will assess each applicant on their ability, performance, and potential as well as their personal attributes such as attitude and coachability. Suitable applicants will be invited to take up a position in the squad.
