Lawn Bowls

Qualifying Standards IOM Flat Green Bowling Association
Commonwealth Games Gold Coast, Australia 2018
The Selection Committee of the IOMFGBA will select a squad for consideration by the CGA IOM for the Gold Coast Australia in 2018. The
final selection will be by the CGA IOM and will be based on participation and performance in all formats and disciplines at the following World,
European and UK open competitions during the qualifying period, October 2015 - December 2017.
At least 1 of the objectives outlined needs to be achieved during the qualifying period for any athlete to be considered for selection. Having
achieved the minimum standard all athletes will be expected to endeavour to increase their participation and standing in as many events as
possible.
Only players who have met the minimum requirements under these Standards will be considered. In deciding the team to be recommended to the
CGA IOM the Association’s Selectors will consider the Standard(s) that the player has satisfied, the timing of achieving these and their current
form and fitness. The selection of the squad and the positions in which they will play will be at the sole discretion of the Association’s Selectors.
