In the event of the qualifier/s being cancelled or postponed a decision will be made by the West Midlands Regional Committee for selection for the IRC's.
Those who qualify, and the reserves will be required to attend IRC training days, dates for which are to be confirmed.
We appreciate that some of the training days clash with the regional series, however, we feel there are sufficient events and flexible criteria within the series at this time.
Due to financial constraints, there are no funds in the budget for IRC kit and qualifying athletes will have to fund the required kit, unless sponsorship is found.
Just as a reminder, the IRCs are for age groups TS2 and TS3 only.
