After receiving your video submission, we will get in touch to let you know we have received it. We may require more information or skills from you so keep an eye out for our e-mails.

Team selections will take place on 17th August and our decisions will be e-mailed out to you. On receiving your Team Placement e-mail you must respond to accept your position on the team we have offered. If you do not respond, the position will be offered out to the next athlete on the list.
