The Selection Ombudsman is RA’s appointed official observer, advisor, mediator and appeal body at National Selection Trials and Events. The Ombudsman shall also be the person who investigates complaints or inquiries from athletes and coaches against Selection Panel decisions.

 The Ombudsman’s role in all the tasks outlined is in relation to questions of process and compliance with the selection policy. It is not the Ombudsman’s role to be involved in judgment decisions relating to the quality and ability of athletes or coaches under consideration by the Selection Committee.

 John Boultbee has been appointed as Selection Ombudsman for the 2018 Underage Selection Trials. John will be in attendance at the Underage Trials and will be contactable for athletes and coaches at all times throughout the trialling process. John can be contacted at 0416 100 500 and [email protected]. Given that Mr Boultbee has declared an association with Sydney University Boat Club (SUBC), and to avoid any perceived conflict of interest, Mr Mark Williams SC will be the contact point for any matters relating to SUBC athletes or coaches. Mr Williams can be contacted on 0408 372 396 and [email protected].
