NIURA Consideration Standards
One of the following three standards:
Aspects of importance to be taken into account:
The following may also be taken into consideration:
If insufficient athletes meet the performance standards, the selection panel may recommend a reduced team to the full NIURA committee. Alternatively, on the advice of the selection panel, further athletes may be added by the NIURA committee to ensure sufficient team members to have a scoring team.
If an athlete wishes to appeal non-selection for a team, the athlete should contact the NIURA chair within ten days of teams being informed. The chair will appoint an Appeal Panel, a group of three people, not involved in the initial selection to review both the selection process and the results of the selection. The Appeal Panel will gather evidence from the athlete and the Selection Committee and report back to the NIURA Committee. The recommendation of the Appeal Panel could include addition of the athlete to the team (if possible or feasible), agreement with the original selection decision and advice on the selection process. A successful appeal should not involve the removal of an already selected athlete from the team.
