Ranking Procedure

3.   0 (zero) ranking points are awarded to the High Overall Score (HOS) in each category at each Championship events detailed in point 1.

      The next highest score in that category is awarded points relating to the difference of the HOS i.e. HOS score = 182 (0 points) next highest
      score = 179 (3 points) and so on.

4    The competitors with the lowest total amount of points when the cut-off for selection is completed will be offered a TEAM GB position
      (refer to Table 1). The 3 competitors (4 in Men) with the lowest amount of ranking points will automatically be offered a team place in
      their appropriate category and the 3 reserves (4 in Men) will be notified of their reserve position. Teams including reserves in each
      category will only be selected from the top 6 positions (8 in Men) from the current rankings.

Resolving Ties

5    For the European and World Championship Team and reserve positions ties will be resolved by shoot off under the supervision of the Chief
      Referee for the event and members of the FITASC Sporting Sub-Committee in attendance.

6    The shoot off will take place as soon as practicable after the results are known at the Selection Cut-Off event. The Shoot off will consist of
      25 targets Old or New System. If after 25 targets the situation is unresolved then the competitors will compete in a ‘Sudden Death’ shoot
      off under the supervision of the Chief Referee for the event until the tie is resolved or a ‘Gentlemen’s’ agreement is reached.

7    Competitors nominated and called forward to present themselves at the shoot off position, must be ready to compete within fifteen (15)
      minutes of being called forward to the shoot off.

8    Should any of the tied competitors be absent from the venue, or not ready to compete within fifteen minutes of notice to compete, then
      their place will be forfeited and the shoot off will continue in their absence providing there are other competitors tied on the same points,
      for the position(s) on offer. if only one tied competitor is present then the position will be awarded to that competitor by default.

9    Should none of the shooters be present to shoot-off then ‘Countback’ will be used, starting with the result from the UK Championship (for
      the European Team) and the British Grand Prix (for the World Team). The decision of the Sub-Committee in this regard is final.

10  The FITASC Sporting Sub-Committee reserve the right to defer the shoot off to a more appropriate time should poor light or extreme
      weather conditions prevent fair competition taking place.

11  If after following the above selection criteria the FITASC Sporting Elected Board members are unable to form a team in one or any of the
      aforementioned categories, then a team(s) will not be represented in that category(s).

12  Should exceptional circumstances dictate i.e. should a team member be incapacitated for any reason, due to health, discipline or
      unforeseen travel arrangements, and then not be available at the competition venue prior to commencement of the event, to substitute that
      team member in the spirit of competition and fair play; providing the team Manager, Captain or Board Directors (if present) are in

13  The selection process will then restart the following year with all shooters points reverting to 0 (zero).
