Level 9 Under 15 Important Information from the National Commission:
As this year is the first year a level 9 U15 division has been included into the ALP and there are conditions regarding the eligibility of athletes for Australian Championships in this division as outlined in section 5.6.3 of the 2015 Technical Regulations.
* Special Conditions Regarding Qualification for Level 9 U15
- Athletes must be aged 14 or 15 years
- Athletes must have previously competed in the level 8 U14 division at a State or National sanctioned event to be eligible for Level 9 U15
Given this is a transition year, the commission is willing to consider petitions for any athlete that has been entered into a state qualification event in this level but has not met the special conditions.
Petitions must be submitted to the men's commission before Friday 27th March and must include appropriate evidence to support the request to be allowed to compete in this division.
The commission will make every effort to respond promptly so any petition not approved will leave time for the gymnast to be placed an alternate level.
Please remember it is the club responsibility to ensure gymnasts entered into each division meet the specified criteria.
