We started 'Team Belgium' in the season 2018-2019.
You have to have the Belgian nationality or you have to live in Belgium (permanent residency) for at least 6 months.
This depends on the number of candidates for the video try-outs and their potential. We will not limit this to a certain number right now.
A flyer must have a lot of bodycontrol, courage and a good presence. Flexibility, sharpness and skills are also important factors but these can be trained additionally during summer.
Although we're mainly looking for all-round athletes, we're also looking for some good tumblers or good stunters. It also depends on the level of candidates for the video try-outs. Don't be discouraged to send in your video's for the try-outs, you still have a chance to learn in the summer!
We had several skills days planned in the beginning of the year to prepare athletes and help them gain neceassary skills for try-outs. But unfortunately due to the corona crisis this isn't possible anymore. This year (2019-2020) we won't offer any preparatory classes and we will focus on getting the new team competition-ready! This means we do expect athletes to have a certain set of skills before they try-out.
!!! No, you can't. When participating in the try-outs, you need to sign a document in which you confirm you will take part of the entire project, from try-outs to the competition in Orlando. Trying out without the intention to actually participate would be unfair to athletes that are fully committed. We count on your sportmanship to respect this.
The project is currently every two years. For the time being, this means Worlds 2021 and Worlds 2023. But this rule may change in the function of organisation, this means that Worlds 2023 is not 100% certain right now?
