Did you know that you can qualify to represent Australia at the Age Group World Championships as part of Team Australia?
The Age Group World Championships are held alongside the Elite World Championships at varying locations around the World each year. We can select up to 20 male and 20 female athletes per age category to represent Team Australia at the World Championships - that's up to 560 athletes per discipline - and you could be one of them!
In order to gain selection on the the Australian Age Group team you must race in Qualifying Races for the relevant discipline. Your finishing position will determine the number of points that you receive, and points are accumulated over the season. Our National Championship races usually hold double points.
If you accumulate enough points, you can qualify to wear the Green & Gold uniform and represent your country alongside thousands of athletes from other countries – it really is the experience of a lifetime.
