13 The Maccabiah Each country sets its own criteria Historically, Australian team selection has been based on times – a set standard from a chosen State or National event For 2017 the NSC will use a hybrid of times, achievement and other factors to fit with the NSC’s goals for the 2017 swimming team…..

14 NSC Goals for the 2017 Maccabiah Swimming Team: To ensure that the best Jewish Swimmers in Australia can/will attend To support all swimmers toward qualification To support all swimmers and families with their financial preparations To field relay teams in each age division (Open men, Open Women, Boys, Girls) To build on the management/coaching structure from 2013 with a view to providing better/more comprehensive support for the swimmers in Israel.
