2021 Youth and Junior World Championship Team Selection Criteria Update

New Gloucester, ME- Today changes were announced to the YWCH Team selection process in that if an event is cancelled the updated criteria explains how the team will be chosen. Since the International Biathlon Union has increased the start quotas for the IBU Cups, it is unrealistic to gather all the juniors together in the same place for trials. It is because of this that the JWCH Team will be selected by discretion. The process of this discretion can be found here

 

  • The YWCH Criteria will remain the same
  • In the event that trials are canceled, the new criteria explain how the team will be chosen.
  • With the IBU increasing start quotas for the IBU Cup, it makes it unrealistic to get all of the Juniors in the same place for trials.  Therefore, the JWCH team will be named by discretion.
  •  This process is explained in the criteria. (FOR DOWNLOAD)
