Sainsbury's 2013 School Games - Selection Criteria

The Sainsbury's 2013 School Games will be held in Sheffield on 12-15 September 2013.  The  selection criteria for the 2013 Scottish team is as follows:

To be eligible for selection fencers must be Under 18 on 1st January 2013.

The date for selection will be the 1st March 2013.

There are 4 fencers allowed per event so each home country can select up to 24 fencers, these must be the same fencers for the individual & team events.

Selection for the first 2 places will be from the GB Junior (U-20) ranking list used for selecting the British team for the World Championships as of 1st March 2013 (providing these 2 fencers have  ranking points and are in the top 75% of the list).

Selection for the 3rd & 4th place will be made by Scottish Fencing's Performance Committee and will be subject to ratification by the Board. Where fencers have not been selected for the first two places from the U20 ranking list by default, these two places will also be allocated by the selectors. For selection for the 3rd and 4th places (and higher places if they are not selected by default from the Junior ranking) the selection committee will also take into account cadet and senior rankings and results. This can include Scottish Open competitions, Scottish U20 and U17 Championships as well as any other criteria or results deemed to be relevant.

The selectors reserve the right to omit a fencer from selection if they deem that fencer's disciplinary record to be unsatisfactory.
