SELECTION CRITERIA FOR RELAY TEAMS
- Selection for relay teams is conducted in a fair and impartial manner.
- Relay team selection is based, at the coaches discretion, on a number of factors including trial results, an athlete’s technical abilities (baton changing and running on bends and straights etc.), an athlete’s availability for training and competitions and how they perform in a team.
- Relay teams are selected based on a majority decision among the coaches. No one coach should have undue influence on the selection process.
- The Club will strive to publish relay teams at least 48 hours before a race, although this may not be possible due to circumstances out of its control (e.g. availability of coaches, inclement weather etc.)
- Inclusion and sport for all is central to the ethos of Glenmore A.C. and good communication between the coaches, committee members, parents and athletes is encouraged.
- Any issues in respect of relay selection should be discussed directly and openly with the coaches or through a committee member or children’s officer if preferred
The club is affiliated to Athletics Association of Ireland and adheres to the Irish Sports Council’s Code of Ethics
