2018 NATIONALS
NSW TEAM SELECTION - FOR INTEREST ONLY

Here is the criteria for the 2018 NSW team selection. http://www.agilitynsw.com.au/21.html

I am not advocating either the Vic methodology (as used for previous nationals) or the NSW methodology. However I find it interesting to compare them.

I guess the main difference is that NSW methodology is based on actual trials (over a lengthy timeframe) and for someone competing at all of them, worst scores can discarded.

With the Vic method (assuming similar to 2016 Nationals) if a handler and/or dog have an off day (at selection trials) it can affect their chances of being selected. However It is 'similar' to the actual Nationals event in that it is a special event on a special day, so teams have to 'perform' to get the best result.

Once again, for interest only.
