Pacific School Games Selection
Athletes wishing to be considered for selection in the NSW team must nominate to attend the “NSW Pacific School Games Selection” trial.
The selection event will be held in the week preceding the NSW Goalball State Championships and training day.
Goalball is a new sport for the Pacific School Games and New South Wales Team management have notified School Sport Australia (the Games organisers) that there must be a minimum of 4 other teams entered into the competition for NSW to take part.
The importance of offering a valid championship with meaningful competition is critical to the success of the event.
The NSWPSG Goalball selection panel will consist of the NSWPSG Goalball Coach and Assistant Coach plus a NSW Goalball representative.
