Information Regarding Team Selection

The Athlete Ombudsman is available to offer athletes confidential advice regarding participation in elite sport, including team selection and the opportunity to participate in protected competition, and to help resolve disputes in connection with that. Our role is to help you understand the rules and your rights. In particular, we can help assist you with questions involving:

  • Selection Procedures Standards and Requirements (athlete Involvement, development, objective criteria, discretionary selection, interpretation, implementation, etc)
  • NGB complaints and “Section 9 complaints” under USOC bylaws
  • Dispute Resolution and AAA Arbitrations
  • Legal representation and costs
  • Affected athletes
  • Past AAA decisions and precedent

Coming soon will be more information related to team selection.
