ANI is pleased to announce the following archers who have been selected for the Home Nations team for the upcoming British Indoor Championships in December. Good luck to all and good shooting.
Junior Recurve: Molly McCormick Sean Martin Seniors -Recurve: Rebekah Tipping , Mark Nesbitt, Conor Hall –Compound: Dean Hamilton
The ANI Board is trying to ensure that the NI Team selection is fair, open and transparent.
Detailed selection criteria are published in the announcements inviting applications, including closing date, minimum scores and where to send the application. Qualifying scores are established based on previous top-half results in that tournament. Selection is made entirely from the scores achieved; no subjective selection is made.
For the Indoor Championships, two applications were received after the deadline, two were sent in to the wrong address and five did not achieve the minimum scores within the qualifying period.
Unfortunately, this means that insufficient archers have been selected to make up full teams. All archers are reminded that the pre-announced selection criteria will be used, without exception, and it is therefore important to read, understand and follow the instructions in the invitation to apply.
