Welsh Schools 2019 Cross Country Selection Policies

Monday 3rd December, 2018

Welsh Schools Athletics Association - Cross Country Events 2019

Welsh Schools would like to clarify its’ selection policy and procedures ahead of this weekend’s Inter Regional Cross Country, which now has added significance following a decision taken by the School’s Executive to send teams of 4 to participate in the Home Countries International in Belfast on January 19th.

Selection for this event will only be open to athletes in the Senior age grouping (ie those in sixth form centres and colleges not eligible for the SIAB event in March)

The policy document also includes selection processes for the SIAB event which this year will also include a mixed relay (4 x 1500m – 2 boys/2 girls).

This extra race has been included on a trial basis in the Middle age grouping for 2019 and allows additional athletes to experience international competition with distances that may suit track specialists. A further bulletin will follow early in 2019 when expressions of interest in this exciting new venture will be sought.
