Athlete Application Window Opens for 2021 Senior European Championships

Following the publication of the final 2021 Senior European Championships Selection Policy, athletes that wish to be considered for selection are invited to submit an application to BF by midday on 12th April 2021.

The 2021 Senior European Championships will be held in Plovdiv (BUL) from 15 to 20.06.2021.

The BF Board recently approved the 2021 Senior European Championships Policy.

The Policy states:

To be considered for selection athletes must complete an online ‘Request to be considered for Selection’ form by the published date. This includes uploading the most recent BF Athlete Assessment document, which is expected to be completed by the athlete and their personal coach. Any mitigating circumstances or discretionary case which an athlete wishes to be taken into account in the selection decisions should be uploaded as part of completing this form.”

The Athlete Assessment form for the Senior European Championships will be based on the T4 Pathway Stage.

To access the Athlete Assessment Form and supporting resources designed to help athletes and their personal coaches complete the form, please click the link below. It is recommended but not required that athletes ask their personal coaches to input into the assessment process.

ATHLETE ASSESSMENT

How do I complete the Athlete Assessment form? If you have not completed this assessment form before there are supporting resources to help you available in the link above, along with the assessment form that can be downloaded. We recommend that athletes copy and paste most of the information requested by BF from their existing personal development plans managed by athletes and their personal coaches.

If you have any questions or need further assistance regarding completing the form please contact athletedevelopment@britishfencing.com.

The window for applications has been extended to reflect the additional time required by athletes to complete the Athlete Assessment form.

Where do I upload the form? The Athlete Assessment form should be uploaded as part of the Selection Application Form  (this is the ‘Request to be considered for Selection’ referred to in the policy) which is available here and from within the resource pack above.

What is the deadline? Midday on Monday 12th April.

 

Finally, please note (as per the policy):

  1. Any athlete who has not completed and submitted a Selection Application Form, shall have no right of appeal against non-selection for these competitions.
  2. Any athlete who has not provided a completed Athlete Assessment Form (submitted as part of the Selection Application Form), shall have no right of appeal against non-selection for these competitions.
  3. Submitting the Selection Application Form is the opportunity for the athlete to provide any relevant data to the Selection Panel. An athlete shall have no right of appeal against non-selection on the grounds that the data supplied by the athlete was missing or inaccurate.
