We advise you discuss this with your club/programme owner/head coach. 

Tryouts for Team Scotland 2021-22 will be in two stages; a video tryout and an in-person tryout. Only those that successfully pass stage one will be invited to stage two. Please note that teams will only be formed if we have enough eligible athletes to meet minimum performance numbers as set out by the ICU. For athletes that were part of the 2019-2020 that was suspended due to COVID-19 you do not need to submit a video tryout for you current team however you should still complete the tryout registration form. 2019-2020 athletes wishing to tryout for additional teams must complete a form, submit one video and pay a tryout fee per discipline.
