February Erg Testing (Update for U23 and Junior Athletes)
To all coaches of U23 and Junior athletes who wish to be selected for any Irish team in 2019:
Please note that the next round of erg testing for U23’s and Juniors has been changed and will now take place prior to the February trials. This is a compulsory test for those seeking selection to any of the national teams (including Coupe) and will inform decisions regarding invitations to the February 23-24 trials.
- The 100mt, 500mt open rate must now be done on the morning of Tuesday 05 February with the 6k open rate on the afternoon of the same day. (This will replace the Tuesday monitoring session for those following the HP program).
- The 100/500m & 6k scores must be submitted no later than 5pm on Wednesday 06 February.
- The 30min open rate test can be done anytime between 08 February and Saturday 16 February.
- The 30min scores must be submitted no later than 5pm on Sunday 17 February.
Please note that scores submitted after the dates above will not be recorded.
