Do you want to represent England at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games?
At the two year milestone to the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, now is the time for England’s Commonwealth Wrestling hopefuls to make themselves known to the newly appointed England Wrestling Team Leader Eddy Kavanagh (E-mail)
Eddy Kavanagh and Assistant Team Leader Jatinder Rakhra welcome aspiring Wrestlers to show what they are made of at the English Senior Championships on 14 May at Alfreton Leisure Centre.
Non-British passport holders are also welcome to put themselves forward as England Training Partners with the opportunity to develop themselves along with the best of England.
Eddy, Jatinder and England National Coach Anatolii Kharytoniuk will be present at the England Seniors to watch the wrestling, talk to wrestlers and assess potential.
Although not a selection event, it would be helpful or the Leadership Team to know “who is out there,” wishing to throw their hats in the ring.
Wrestling is hoping that supporting funding to enable training and competition experience for potential England medallists will be available from Sport England/Commonwealth Games England, as successfully deployed in previous Commonwealth Games. However, this will be a result of a formal business plan and, even if successful, will not be accessible until within one year of the Games.
In the meantime, Tony Melling, (Chair of the England Committee) Eddy and Jatinder are working with the England Regional Coaches to set up Senior Squads to feed in to and support England selections. The leadership team will also be putting together a Gold Coast Selection Policy that will be published on the website in due course.
