This week's National Team selection session will take place in Milford National School, Castletroy, Limerick. The session will also include the qualifier for the male -80kg sparring position.
In order to facilitate the qualifier, all competitors who wish to be considered for the -80kg position should contact Mr. Hannigan by email (email@example.com) no later than 5.00 on Friday so that we can prepare the draw. As always with qualifying tournaments, there will be a 2kg tolerance at the weigh in which will take place on Saturday morning at the venue.
The provisional timetable for the day is as follows:
11.00 - 12.30. Sparring
1.00 - 2.00 -80kg Male sparring
2.00 - 4.00 Team pattern
As discussed in the last training session, a deposit of €200 must be paid prior to the selection tournament in your category. -80kg competitors must pay this no later than 2 July. All other competitors must pay the deposit prior to or on 23 July. This deposit will be repaid if you are not selected. If you are selected, this deposit will be used defray the costs of the trip which we expect to be approximately €625.
Please also note that while attendance at the ITA summer camp is not mandatory for squad members, it does represent an excellent opportunity to train with many of the coaches and is highly recommended.
