2019 Inas Global Games – Selection policies and Games information
UKSA’s main focus for GB Teams for 2019 will be multi-sport at the 2019 Inas Global Games (athletics, swimming, cycling), plus Inas Equestrian Championships, Cricket Tri Nations Series, and Inas approved events working with British Taekwondo and British Judo and where relevant the LTA.
UKSA will not be entering a GB Team into other 2019 Inas events across the sports at this time.
2018 Selection Policies

Selection is being carried out in a more streamlined way on this occasion. Only performances from Power of 10 will be considered. The UKSA Sport & Selection Committee (SSC) will extend invitations to appropriate athletes, based on all factors and not just performance.
The SSC aims to have those invitations out by the end of April.
Update 25.4.18: Invitations to athletes have been sent. The full Team will be announced end May/early June 2018.

Selection Policy is available for download or by requesting a copy from the UK Sports Association.
The UKSA Sport & Selection Committee (SSC) will extend invitations to appropriate athletes, based on all factors and not just performance.

The Selection Policy is now available. We apologise for the delay in its publication.
Interested swimmers should take account of the event and financial information available below.
Although UKSA has been in contact with various relevant organisations in the UK, to gather appropriate information and note those who are interested, we ask that if you are an Inas classified swimmer and are interested in this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org attaching the information requested in Form 1a below.

Athlete Costs for Summer Games
Athlete Cost for the Event will be in the region of £1679. The final cost is dependant on confirmed athlete and staff numbers. Further details will be given in invitation letters. This includes international travel to/from Paris from UK departure point, accommodation, meals, transport in Paris, event entry/fees, Inas capitation and staff costs.
Athletes will be required to pay £750 on acceptance of their invitation and the final balance at the end of May 2018. This is to meet the organisers deadlines. Swimmers final payment deadline will be extended into June 2018. Costs do not include kit costs and this will be extra.
There is no flexibility with payments on this occasion. This is not something that UKSA highlights lightly but given there is no sports funding available to support the athletes to Inas events, it is a necessary requirement to ensure the Team can be prepared.
Staff in all sports will be invited at the discretion of the SSC.
The Team will arrive in Paris on 14th July 2018 and departure will be on 22nd July 2018.
