AUF are looking for interested competent Spear-fishers, team managers & a fundraising person, to represent AUF Australian Spearfishing in the above event.

Interested sponsors are also welcome to assist & promote their products & support for Australian Spearfishing.

We made a decision to change our selection process & try something different to see if we can get a better result. We will consider past national event participation & results as well as results from previous international attendances although that criteria will not be the only consideration.

Expressions are open until Evening of 20 October 2017.

A committee will evaluate a shortlist & get back to all persons that have expressed interest with our preliminary thoughts & selections. We've got a focus on the future and want to see more up & coming prospects along with some past proven competitors.

ABOUT THE EVENTS.

-The Interpacific's in Hawaii is normally a great event & requires 4 males (2pairs) and 2 females ( 1 pair) & reserves will also be considered. A team manager each for men’s and women’s will also be required.

Conditions are similar somewhat to Northern parts of Australia but the men will be required to dive & work comfortably to and beyond 25 mtrs whilst swimming quite hard over long distances.

-The AUF normally pay the competition costs which includes presentation & boat costs during the scheduled practice & event dates.

Managers/Competitors will need at least 11 days in Hawaii and will be up for airfares & accommodation, meals, boats on unscheduled days, etc whilst in Hawaii.

Fundraising is done by the AUF & competitors and this can reduce individuals expenses considerably.
