How will the selected players be allocated to the National Academies?
- In the first instance and where possible all selected players will be allocated to their 1st choice National Academy.
- If more than 8 selected players choose the same National Academy as their first choice, the panel will allocate 8 players as per section 8 of the selection policy. Remaining players will then be allocated to their 2nd choice National Academy (where there are spaces available).
- If a player does not select a 2nd choice and they are not selected for a place at their 1st choice then they will not get offered a place.
- If one of the National Academies has less than 4 players allocated, then a player who submitted a 2nd choice for that programme may be reallocated from their 1st choice in order to make the National Academy viable with a minimum of 4 players.
