Any athlete wishing to be selected for Great Britain at FIE or EFC competitions must compete in the National Championships in the relevant category – Cadet, Junior or Senior. Only in exceptional circumstances will an exemption be granted, which must be sought in advance and have received written approval of the Performance Director. In the event an athlete is unexpectedly injured or ill a doctor’s note will be required to be submitted to Head Office within one week of the date of the Championships.
The only exception would be if an athlete does not have British Nationality at the point of the National Championships but subsequently receives British Nationality.
This will be applied to the National Championships held after 1st September 2016
