2007-06-12 05:24 - Commonwealth Championships agreed as focus for High Performance Programme
Posted by Brillmartmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZAt a FeNZ meeting on 2 June the Executive endorsed a proposal that the Commonwealth Junior and Senior Championships, scheduled for 2009 and 2010 respectively, become the designated focus events for the high performance programme over the next three years.  In addition, it was agreed that FeNZ would investigate submitting a bid to run the 2009 Junior Commonwealth Championships.

While there are a number of reasons why it is deemed appropriate to target these events, it was agreed that this level of competition accurately reflects our current stage of development and also the SPARC requirement that we compete in events “that are of significance to New Zealanders”.

One immediate impact of the decision to target Commonwealth Championships is that participation by FeNZ mandated teams in competitions between now and the two Commonwealth events will focus primarily on preparing for those events rather than simply the competition in question. 

In order to assist to determine demands on support that may be required for both individuals and teams over the next three years can you please review the attached form which lists a number of competitions that we believe may be relevant to preparation for the two Commonwealth Championships and indicate whether or not you intend to be available to compete in them.

Commonwealth Championships and Events that may form part of preparation for them.


As noted in the link to this document FeNZ has Identified Commonwealth Junior (2009) and Senior Championships (2010) as our primary focus for high performance events in the short to medium term.

It is expected that as part of their preparation for these events athletes will target a number of competitions to assist them.  Below we have identified a number of events that may form part of that preparation.

In order to assist us with our planning  (and required support mechanisms) can you please indicate which of the following events you would expect to take part in and/or make yourself available to be selected for. 

Notes:
1.    The events identified below should not be seen as exclusive, i.e. there are other events that will be relevant to your preparation not listed here.
2.    In addition to the events listed it is assumed that NZ Cup events and AFF events would form part of the preparation for NZ and Australian based fencers.
3.    The inclusion of Challenge Australia should not be construed as indicating a preference for Epee.  It is included as the only “domestic” International Grade A event available.
4.    There is space on the form for you to identify other relevant competitions.
5.    Please complete the form and return to Gareth Foley by email at gareth.foley@paradise.net.nz
