Selected athletes are strongly encouraged to join the national squad training as soon as possible by registering their interest through their club coach.

Affiliates will have the rights to withdraw their players from the squads at their own discretion.

As previously stated, a training camp will be held on 17-19 June 2019 and a second selection will be held on 18th June 2019 for the following championships.
