Athletes are selected to compete in various meets as deemed appropriate by their coaches. Athletes aged 17 and under must have a parent’s permission to attend these meets.
Selection of athletes is based on commitment to training, past performance and competition needs. The coach and athlete may look at the fixtures list and plan a year-long agenda for competition that will aid the athlete in determining their financial requirements for the year.
UCAC will arrange travel and accommodation for club-selected competitions and pay entry fees. Athletes will be invoiced for their portion of the travel and accommodation expenses. Athletes may choose to make their own travel arrangements.
Athletes must indicate their wish to participate in a meet by the indicated deadlines.
