A five person selection committee will review all athletes who register their interest for joining a Massey University team.
The selection committee will be made up of one representative from each campus, nominated by agreement from the Recreation Manager and the Student President from each campus. These three individuals will select the team.
In addition, the two Massey University high performance coordinators will provide (non-voting) advice on the athletes who have registered.
The Selection Committee will chose a team or individual who they determine to be best placed to represent Massey University at the highest level. Some of the factors involved in the selection process will include:
Athletes should expect to cover their own cost of registration, travel, accommodation and equipment. The Recreation Centre and Student Association will undertake to assist where they are capable of doing so within the limits of their respective resources.
Students may seek assistance through the club grant process to defray costs. There is no guarantee of financial assistance from the University or the Student Associations. In addition, individuals and teams are encourage to fund raise to cover their costs of competition.
