AMAC National Squad Clinic and Tournament Attendance Guidelines & Conditions for 2019 :
AMAC National Squad Clinic and Tournament Attendance Guidelines & Conditions for 2019:
It is IMPORTANT to read this as part of signing the pledge so there is an understanding that if people show up to the main tournament without meeting all squad training requirements they will not be able to compete.
Our requirements are minimal standards of attendance enforced in all sporting codes at a national level. This is being made clear up front so anyone who must pull out or are dismissed from competing understand our need to be clear and consistent in applying conditions to be fair to everyone.

There is no Melbourne Clinic for 2019, so Victorian Squad members are exempt from the State Clinic (two clinic) requirement but must attend the Pre-tournament Training.
