AGRA has released the National Conditions of Nomination Forms to all clubs. The forms are available via the links below. Hardcopies are also available at Greyhounds WA.
Greyhounds are eligible to represent WA should they be domiciled here for not less than 76 days out of the 150 days immediately prior to the National Acceptance Closing Date on Thursday 24 July 2014. A greyhound first named and registered in WA may return here to qualify for the Nationals, ONLY if not eligible to compete for any other State under the domicility clause.
Trainers who send a greyhound interstate for any period of time leading up to the running of the WA Sprint and Distance Championship Heats on Saturday 9 August 2014 should ensure they lodge the appropriate Notice of Training / Removal from Kennel Form immediately, as these will be used to confirm greyhound eligibility. A greyhound competing interstate will be considered as domiciled here during that period, should it remain in the care of its WA trainer.
The National Conditions of Nomination Form must be lodged with RWWA by 12noon on Thursday 24 July 2014 for all greyhounds you wish to nominate for the Nationals. Trainers may lodge both a Sprint and Distance Form if they so desire. Please nominate early so that greyhound eligibility can be confirmed.
The Nationals Conditions of Nomination Form only satisfies national criteria for the events and does not nominate a greyhound for the qualifying events – the WA Sprint and Distance Championships. Separate Feature Event Nomination Forms will be produced for those events, with nominations closing at 8.30am on Tuesday 5 August 2014. These will be available below in the Feature Event Nominations section 2 weeks prior to the closing date. Greyhounds will not be drawn into either of these series if not nominated initially via the Nationals Conditions of Nomination Form by the closing date on 24 July 2014.
Post - 24 July, trainers are requested to contact the Greyhounds Trainers' Service Centre on 9445 5287 to withdraw the national nomination for any greyhound should it not be competing for the Nationals via the WA Sprint or Distance Championships. Likewise trainers may withdraw a nomination for one of the events if a greyhound was initially nominated for both distances.
