2023 Australian Age Group Triathlon and Multisport Team Selection Points


Triathlon Australia urges all Australian age group athletes to read the 2023 Australian Age Group Triathlon Team Selection Policy and or the 2023 Australian Age Group Multisport Team Selection Policy.

Will Triathlon Australia Publish 2023 Australian Age Group Triathlon and or Multisport Team Selection Points?

Due to the predicted lower number of athletes seeking selection to the 2023 Australian Age Group Triathlon and or Multisport Team, Triathlon Australia will not be publishing selection points for each 2023 Australian Age Group Triathlon and or Multisport Team individual selection event. We have found publishing selection points in the past may not show the true selection picture for eligible athletes throughout the season for a particular campaign. An athlete may be sitting on the overall selection points table at 40th position however this athlete is really sitting in 15th as 25 athletes in front of this athlete may not want to be selected for the Australian Age Group Triathlon and or Multisport Team.

Triathlon Australia will monitor 2023 Australian Age Group Triathlon and or Multisport Team Applications and will publish any age group category which shows to have more than 20 applicants in any individual event throughout the triathlon and or multisport selection period.

How many 2023 Australian Age Group Triathlon and Multisport Team National Selection Events should I compete in?

The TA National Age Group Manager will make selections in priority order per the highest accumulated selection points based on the best three results in the 2023 Australian Age Group Triathlon and or Multisport Team National Selection Events. Detailed information can be found in the 2023 Australian Age Group Triathlon Team Selection Policy Clause G3(a) and the 2023 Australian Age Group Multisport Team Selection Policy Clause G3(a).
