Selection Appeals Information

Where is selection announced – How do I know I have been selected?

Announcements will be published on the website here: GBR Cadet Selection Announcements. Selected athletes will be sent a follow-up email to the address in the BF membership. BF is not responsible or liable for any failure to receive or act on selection emails. Athletes are advised to regularly check the announcement pages.

How do I accept selection?

Typically athletes will receive an email from the BF membership platform with a link to accept selection prior to a deadline date. Fees may be payable at this point. Athletes planning to accept selections should ensure that their contact email address in the BF platform is up to date, regularly monitored and that sufficient finances are in place in advance. By accepting selection an athlete is automatically bound by the GBR Policies which can be found here.
