National Track and Field Championships - Selection Policy
The selection of the Canterbury Team for the Jennian Homes Track and Field Championships will be based on standards set by the Track and Field Selectors (Canterbury standards PDF).
All athletes who equal or better the standard listed shall be selected for the Canterbury Team except:
- If more than three athletes in one event qualify.
- If the selectors are of the option that an athlete, who has bettered a standard at an early qualifying meeting, loses form to the extent that they are no longer worthy of selection in the team, he / she may be excluded.
The selectors may add athletes who have not reached qualifying standards to the team at their discretion.
Performances must be set under such conditions as are required for the setting of a Canterbury record.
