IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE AS THIS IS DIFFERENT TO PREVIOUS YEARS:
For Players who are nominating as an Australian Coach:
An Australian Coach who nominates for selection as an Australian player in the age group to which they have been appointed will have their Coaching appointment set aside until completion of the Selection Event.
They will have no input into selection of the team for that age group and an alternative Selector will be appointed.
If the Coach is subsequently selected as an Australian player, HAMC will appoint a new Coach for that age group.
