Selection Policy

Lockwood, Austin  Tuesday, November 19, 2019

Selection of players and captain for WCCF Team and representative events is led by the International Secretary.

Upon initial selection the team is proposed to the Executive Committee, who confirm the selection of the team or may suggest changes.

Selection for such events is based on the consideration of a number of factors including but not limited to:

  1. Rating
  2. Rating Progression
  3. Activity level
  4. Titles held
  5. Performance at similar or higher tournament level
  6. Player standing with WCCF (both disciplinary and financial)
  7. Player membership status*
  8. Defaults record
  9. Player acceptance of WCCF Team requirements

*Please note that selection to major international team events such as Olympiads or European Team Championships will normally be limited to premium members unless an exception has been agreed by the Executive Committee (for example for the purposes of recruitment or new player development). International friendly matches are excluded from this policy and may feature both national and international members.
