Climbing New Zealand Selection Policies

Selection policy document for National Team selections (Youth Team, Open Team and Development Squads)

UPDATE: Climbing New Zealand has established a selection policy for the Speed discipline. This policy applies to all international competitions so limited to Open, Junior, Youth A and Youth B categories.

Speed qualification criteria – Top 5 placing in each category, plus a time less than or equal to (time in seconds):
Open Male 10.000
Open Female 13.000
Junior Male 11.000
Junior Female 14.000
Youth A Male 12.000
Youth A Female 15.000
Youth B Male 12.000
Youth B Female 15.000

For the sake of clarity there is no speed qualification for Youth C and Youth D as these grades climb on the Pacific K route and this has no international relevance at this stage.

The Climbing New Zealand selection committee for 2020 is Rob Moore, Peter Lofthouse and Fabrizio Facchini. Convener: Ian Hallam.
