Format: Pairs trials, to be scored against “open trials” datum.


Start Time:  Will be confirmed at a later date to coincide with the “Open trials” on the Saturday.


Squad Training: It is a requirement that squad members attend the coaching sessions that will be provided and will number around 5 sessions. These training weekends will determine which pairs (if any) plus reserves will represent Ireland at the championships. Should squad participants fail to show for these sessions a written warning will issue and further non compliance will result in their partnership losing their squad status. Depending upon entries the top 4 pairs in each category will qualify to form squads.



Good Luck
