The World Selection Committee consists of a single member each in all the countries that have applied to the Olympic Games. The committee is made up of two trainers, one each in all the four qualified nations. Each country is given a specific time to submit its application and is also given an opportunity to attend the World Selection Committee meeting. The purpose of this meeting is to evaluate the candidacy of the candidate nations and select the one that meets the guidelines and meets the requirements for the Olympic Games.
The International Olympic Committee has decided to hold their selection process based on sports that are played at the international level. At their last Executive Committee meeting, held in Krakow, Poland in April of 2021, they approved a new policy that would be in place for the games in 2021. This is the first time that the policies of the Olympic Committee will be affected by sports that are played at the amateur or inter-regional level.
The new policy states that the Executive Committee will take into consideration bids from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and the World Professional Basketball Association (WBA). It will also consider bids from foreign organizations. The policy also states that the National Association of Basketball Coaches will provide feedback on the progress of the athlete and provide recommendations for developmental programs, training and developmental coaching. The World Professional Basketball Association will evaluate the bids received by the foreign organizations and will make a recommendation to the National Association of Basketball Coaches. The foreign organizations will then select three athletes who will represent their nation at the Olympic Games in Boston in April of next year.
The new policy allows the National Association of Basketball Coaches to determine if an athlete meets the requirements for eligibility. They will then determine if the athlete is eligible for the Olympics. If the athlete does not meet the necessary requirements, they will not be allowed to participate in the competition. According to NESC President Pat Reeves the decision was made to implement this policy after the players and the national association decided to take a national focus in their selection process. Pat Reeves explained that the previous decision was made without proper research and consultation with the women’s basketball players and the association now plans to take the appropriate steps to improve the selection process.
There has been criticism of previous Olympic committee selections made by the current board, which resulted in four different teams winning the gold medal in London. The criticism has come from all angles including the athletes, coaches, members of the organizing committee and fans. NESC Managing Commissioner John Paxson responded to the criticism by stating that the committee has done a lot of research in the past and will continue to do so in the future. He went onto to state that the committee is aware of the concerns and frustrations of the fans and athletes. He stated that they are committed to improving the selection process and working to improve the overall quality of the games in the future.
The World Selection Committee has a lot of work to do in order to get connected with the female basketball players in the country. I was a little skeptical when I first heard about the new World Selection Committee, but I am glad to see that they are taking the necessary steps to ensure that they get the right players to represent the United States at the next Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. I am looking forward to the games to be held in Massachusetts. I know that the state is a great place for a variety of different athletic events, but I also know that basketball is just a part of the overall talent that the state brings to the table. The improvements that the committee has made to their selection procedures may very well mean that the Massachusetts teams can compete with the other teams from the other parts of the country while getting connected with the best athletes in the nation.
