The SSAXC Committee has recently appointed Robert Jones and Georgia Merritt as coach and manager of the Australian Team for the 2018 World Junior / U23 Championship in Goms, Switzerland.

The same leadership combination led the team at the 2017 World Championship in the USA earlier this year, and many of the same athletes on that team are still eligible to compete. Head coach Valerio Leccardi will also have input into the championship preparation at the team base in Davos, Switzerland, during December and January.

Selection for the team will take place following the Australian winter. Selection policies for the National Team, World Championships, and World Cup have recently been updated by the SSAXC Committee and can be read in detail in the Selection Section.
