Prize Giving at the Trials

Prize Giving at the Trials

Following the IODAI MEETING ON THE 15TH May 2016 the Committee would like to make the following statement:

  • The Trials is not an Event.
  • The Event is the competition where you are representing your country.
  • The Sensitivities of those children who did not make teams need to be taken into consideration at the Trials.
  • It was acknowledged that Parents should have been informed of the change regarding the Prizes and the decision made not to present trophies.
  • Parents were unaware that there was pressure regarding the time length of the Prizegiving being put on the Committee members running the Prizegiving.
  • Each of the children who made the team were individualy congratulated at registration.
  • A team photograph normally would have been taken but due to the time pressure it did not happen.
  • The official congratulations of the team comes with the presentation of  both Team gear and a team photograph at the next appropriate regional Event.
  • The Committee following much debate re prizes looked at the Prizes given in other countries at this level and a decision has now been made to present Team Badges.
