  International 2018

From the selection policy

Each player who wishes to play for the national team, must register to put their name forward on the SPA website or inform the relevant team manager, stating their choice of team they wished to be selected for (up to 4 choices, but you may only choose 1 if that is your preference). Please be aware when making choices, that if you select a B team before an A team, then you may lose out as all A team trials are completed first.

There will be one trial in a year and registration of interest will be announced two months before a cut-off date to be confirmed by the executive.

Please Note: you can't select B1 or B2 as your choice, it must be 'B team', and the B1 manager will have first choice of players.

You can select different team options depending on what events are on at a particular time of year (e.g. Worldís, Europeanís, Nationís Cup).

The only exception to mandatory online registration, are players from the Learning Disability division, as their teams will be managed & selected by their respective managers (no online registration required).

Above must be completed by the following deadlines set: midnight 31st December & midnight 30th June each year Ė no exceptions to this rule due to tight timescales for trials.
The deadline will be decided once the dates of the trials are known.
It is each playerís individual responsibility to make sure they let the national association know of their availability for each event; twice per year (new leagues must be informed of this action prior to them joining the Scottish Pool Association Ė SPA Promoters duty).

Deadline 1 (31st December) is set for events organised during the first 6mths of the year (normally Bridlington Mar/Apr). Deadline 2 (30th June) is set for events during the last 6mths of the year (normally World Champs, Nations Cup, Oct/Nov).

Trial Places
Each team manager has the option on their squad size participating at each event. They will select the core of their team and leave space for the following trial places:
(5 person team) Ė 1 trial place
Menís A, Ladies A, Seniorís A, Seniorís B, Masterís A, Masterís B, U15 A&B, U18 A&B, U23 A&B, LDís A (men & ladies)

(7 person team) Ė 2 trial places
Ladies B team, LDís B team, Menís B (New from 2018)

(11 person team) Ė 2 trial places
Menís B team

Team Managers Selection Order
This is the order in which all national managers pick from the players available and run their trials:
(1) Menís A, Ladies A
(2) Seniors A, Y&J A, LDís A
(3) Masterís A
(4) Menís B1, Ladies B1
(5) Seniorís B1, Y&J B1, LDís B1
(6) Masterís B1
(7) Menís B2, Ladies B2
(8) Seniorís B2, Y&J B2, LDís B2
(9) Masterís B2

5. Automatic Invite Places
There will be a selection of players who automatically get an invite into all the national ĎAí teams; these will be as follows:
ē *No1 in the rankings for each section tour
ē *Scottish Singles Champion in each division
ē *World Singles Champion (event every 2yrs)
ē *European Singles Champion (event every 2yrs)

6. Automatic Trial Places
As well as the invited players into each team, the following players will be offered a trial (if eligible to play for Scotland, and these teams are part of their player choices):
a) IM players ranked 2-8 will merit a trial in the Menís A team. If these players fail to make the A team then they will be automatically selected in the B1 squad.
b.) IM players ranked 9-16 will merit a trial in the Menís B1 team. If these players fail to make the B1 team then they will be automatically selected for the B2 squad.
c) IM players ranked 17-32 will merit a trial in the Menís B2 team.
d) Players ranked 2-4 in other divisions (Ladies, Seniors, Y&J, LD) will merit a trial in their A team. If these players fail to make the A team then they will be automatically selected in the B1 squad.
e) Players ranked 5-8 in other divisions (Ladies, Seniors, Y&J, LD) will merit a trial in their B1 team. If these players fail to make the B1 team then they will be automatically selected for the B2 squad.
f) Players ranked 9-12 in other divisions (Seniors, Y&J) will merit a trial in their B2 team.
g) The Ladies B2 team will be open to trial for those players ranked above No8.
h) The LDís B2 team trial will be open for all players ranked above No.8

1st Trial Dates
These would be held over the 2nd & 3rd weekend (Saturday & Sunday) in January.

These dates need to be done early due to the first event in March/April each year.
